Pop beach campaign proving popular

ALMOST 7,500 people have signed up to an online campaign to bring Channel 4's Pop Beach concert back to the golden sands of Great Yarmouth. The event was staged in the resort in 2003 and 2004 but moved to rival seaside resort Weston-Super-Mare in 2005 and was rebranded as T4 on the Beach.

to the golden sands of Great Yarmouth.

The event was staged in the resort in 2003 and 2004 but moved to rival seaside resort Weston-Super-Mare in 2005 and was rebranded as T4 on the Beach.

In April this year, a campaign was launched on social networking site Facebook urging organisers to rethink the concert's venue.

Campaign creator, Thetford man James Stubbins, said the online petition had suffered a little quiet period but support was picking up again.

He said: “This is our final push, really, as in the next few months T4 will be deciding where they would like the 2009 show to be staged. We need people to sign up.”
