Artists and events companies beware

The High Court today found a Liverpool events company to blame for the Dreamspace tragedy. Foskett J has found Brouhaha International Limited 55% to blame for the incident which saw a large, tent like, inflatable art structure designed by artist Maurice Agis take off in July 2006, killing 2 and injurying many more. The finding was made in contribution proceedings brought by Chester-le-Street District Council, the apportionment of blame being as between those two parties only. Had the now deceased artist, Maurice Agis, been a party to the proceedings it is likely he would have carried most of the blame. However, he was uninsured and had no assets.
