There's no way the ground needed that much time to recover, even accounting for BTBATB's inflated attendance projections, and the slovenliness of its attendees. Furthermore, venue blackout dates are set far in advance, and well known to everyone who works there. Booking an event on one would be a major institutional error.
I suspect the Stanhope ground simply didn't want BTBATB's business, and this explanation is just a polite way of brushing that off.
I concur, strong smell of bullshit in that reply. They discovered what BTBATB's was about by whatever means and simply did not want their business. If people were phoning up passing on info about the group, i would want no part of that. Yes they may be rotten to the core with their objectives and their never pay anything advice but at the end of the day they were holding a piss-up in a field, and while they are doing that, somebody was getting a rest from the bad advice and Nadine got a break from instantly banning people for asking the wrong questions.
