Why move the Festival of Lights to Mowbray Park?

What is wrong with Sunderland Council moving the Festival of Lights from Roker Park to Mowbray Park?

I, for one, will never visit the town just to see the lights. A lot of people, specially the elderly, enjoy them every year. I bet if they could the council would move the airshow somewhere else just to upset people. They have not thought about the backlash it will cause.
