A company organising student parties have dismissed fears that they will be a repeat of the carnage that once descended upon Bournemouth and the UK.
Coalition, a company run by students have played down the thought that they could be encouraging binge drinking and anti-social behaviour.
Owner of Coalition, Connor Scanlan said: “We work and liaise with venues and security to ensure a fun but safe night out.”
This comes after he was questioned as to whether newbies on the block, Coalition, could potentially be encouraging, behaviours similar to those shown by students participating in the notorious 2009 Carnage bar crawls.
We work extensively with the council, the environmental health agency and security companies.”
Carnage bar crawls were banned by 16 different Universities in 2009 after a student was caught urinating on a war memorial.
Mr. Scanlan said: “For huge events like The Block Party, we work extensively with the council, the environmental health agency and security companies to put in place preventative measures to limit those types of behaviours.”
Although he clearly outlined the lengths they go to, to ensure everyone’s safety, he said they “are not always able to control how students behave outside of licensed premises”, but has encouraged all to set an example for themselves, the university and students alike.
Coalition was formed this year and work in combination with other Bournemouth party promoting companies such as We Are Your Friends and Tribe, and aim to provide events for both students and the public which will allow them to express themselves, enjoy their favoured genres of music and socialise and meet new people.
