Cumbrians still party like it's the end of the world
Published at 14:30, Friday, 28 December 2012
The end of the world wasn’t enough to stop Brampton having a party. Off the Wall, a coffee shop on Front Street, held a party at a time when there were some who thought there would be no-one there to enjoy it.
According to the ancient Mayan civilisation, the Earth was due to come to an end on Friday.
Clearly, it didn’t.
To mark this, everyone attending was encouraged to dress up as superheroes who could save the world.
They were entertained by Brampton act Heidi and Tony, and dined on nachos, a dish from Mexico, home of the Mayans.
Emma Goodman, who runs the shop with her parents and went along dressed as Clark Kent aka Superman, said: “The 21st fell on a Friday, which is when we have our live music, so we had to do something.”
