Preston judge dismisses threatening behaviour conviction appeal by Fylde DJ who disrupted Harris Museum performance
A man has lost his bid to overturn a conviction for a public order offence after disrupting a performance staged by anti fracking campaigners during the Lancashire Fringe festival.
A monologues performance called 'Nannas with Banners' at Preston's Harris Museum on May 22, 2019, was interrupted by Geza David Tarjanyi - also known as Gayzer Frackman - who started to rage at the performers.
Tarjanyi, 58, formerly of Lytham but now of Boundary Street, Leyland, was convicted after a trial at Preston Magistrates' Court, which heard he entered the performance area, filming and shouting comments towards the women.
Judge David Potter, sitting at Preston Crown Court, dismissed his bid to appeal the conviction after hearing evidence about Tarjanyi's actions from witnesses who were at the museum.

Footage from his own camera, which he later uploaded onto Facebook, shows him filming from on a balcony at the museum as their performance took place, before descending and turning the camera to himself, saying: "Just to let you know this is exactly what we are going to do - to stop the lie. No more pain no more fear."
He then walked onto the round stage area shouting: "I've seen enough of this lie, stop the lie."
