Boston Beat event is cancelled due to the weather

A FREE music event planned for Boston on Saturday has been cancelled due to the weather.

Boston Beat was due to be held at Central Park - featuring nine bands on a stage, children’s rides, trade stalls and a food marquee.

BID manager Niall Armstrong confirmed to The Standard this morning that the event has been cancelled.

He said an inspection of the park showed the ground to be waterlogged and organisers had health and safety fears for the stage and rides.
