ORGANISERS of a secret “rave” party in Huddersfield have been told: “Cancel it”.
Over 1,000 people are predicted to attend the event called Party in the Woods 2011 organised on Facebook.
The all-nighter is set to take place this weekend at a location that will not be disclosed until two days before the event.
A group on the social networking site dedicated to the event already has almost 1,600 members.
The party, set to feature several guest DJs, is unlicensed and organisers face a massive fine or prison if it goes ahead.
Police and Kirklees Council licensing officers are monitoring the build-up.
Pc Richard Woodhead, Kirklees licensing officer, said that without a proper licence party-goers are being put at serious risk.
He said: “It is being monitored by the Police Intelligence Unit.
“There are licensable activities taking place so it needs to be licensed, otherwise the organisers risk being prosecuted.
“Because of the location there are safety issues. There are going to be a lot of young people and the organisers need to think of their well-being.
“They need to have security marshals and having things like drinkable tap water in case a person has drunk too much or taken drugs is very important.
“There’s also the concern that if there is an emergency the area will make it difficult for an ambulance to get there, or if something does go wrong people will too scared to phone anyone.”
