On 08/09/1979  a regular festival takes place in Newcastle called the Mattara Festival. On this day a rock concert was put on for the youth. It apparently got out of hand due to the number of youths in attendance, lack of private security, the volume of the music, the ‘inappropriate’ dress of the young females, and the consumption of alcohol. Supt Ferris said that “We could have filled our jails that day”

Harold was the husband of Mabel Isabel “Mabs” FERRIS who died on Friday  22 May 2015, aged 93.
