WHAT IS THE URBIS BEACH
over 80 tonnes of sand are due to be put onto cathedral gardens outside Urbis, in Manchester, to create the largest urban beach in Britain.
There will also be live outdoor gigs on site, an outdoor cinema, art installations and even surfing, with Wifi computer access for workers.
SO WHY IS EVERYONE SO AGAINST THE IDEA
people seem to think this is the government's way of "stripping the identity" of Manchester's emo/mosher/goth population who regularly congregate outside the museum.
people also wonder what the use of a beach will be in the middle of December.
but why does the fact that it becomes a beach mean that you can't hang out there anymore in fact, shouldn't this make it a tad more interesting than just standing on a bit of grass in front of a glass building the beach will be taken away at the beginning of september and come on, there's always GASWORKS.
i don't know about you, but we'd LOVE to see a beach in Manchester. donkey rides, ice creams, sandcastles. sounds ideal to us.
