Maybe this Hooded Ram rumour prompted Bushys to write a post about next years TT, or maybe it didn't, but you'd certainly hope that 3fm, who've made an entire news article about a Facebook post might have checked up on everything

https://www.three.fm/news/isle-of-man-news/bushys-village-back-for-2019/

So where does that leave the bottle neck carpark for TT 2019, does the corpy try and re-lease it out again to some one else ? Would bushys put in a really stupid offer, just to get the corpy out of a whole they got themselves into ?

You should ask Dilligaf, he issued a very strong NO to a similar question so he obviously knows what's what.

Who would ever want to go to the Bottle Neck car park after The Bushy's Village at the Villa? Well obviously some people, because it was quite popular at times to be fair, but my point is that Douglas Corporation had a nice thing going and in asking for tenders now they don't. They more-or-less squeezed Bushy's out.

Great how Bushy's bounced back, bigger and even better.

Rock on TT2019.

Bushy's Village is confirmed at the Villa for 2019

Well, a Village is confirmed anyway

Great to see Bushy's Village back and not losing the magic of the original tent and its no nonsense approach to ensuring that both regulars and visitors have a great time.

Or they could just look to sell their soul to the 'business community'.

Without sponsorship there'll be no big bands from overseas I guess

Yeah. That.

'Optimum branding opportunities' 'Premium locations... hospitality suites' artisan that and crafted this. No doubt I'll go along at some point, it was good last year, but I'm suspicious already.

I'll wager there'll be no big bands from overseas even with sponsorship.

There'll be nostalgic glances towards the Bottleneck when it pisses down and the Villa gardens turn into a swamp.

It seemed to me that the HR regularly struggled to make the same brew twice. Okells may not be the most mind blowing flavoursome beer in the world but it has always been consistent.
