Save Live Music Venues

In January this year we were issued with a Noise Abatement Notice as the Environmental Health Department of Manchester City Council deemed our music to be a nuisance to a neighbouring resident, 23 years into our stint as a live music venue on Oldham Street.

We are appealing the notice in court and the case will be heard in July.

This is an ongoing problem at live music venues across the country. Residential properties are being built in the vicinity of live music venues without proper thought to the logistics of how it would work for both the residents and local businesses. The problem is occurring around the globe too in Australia after a concerted campaign by live music venues, the Government are now working to implement the Agent of Change planning principle, which means in an area with a long standing music venue, new residents must pay for sound proofing, but if the music venue opens in an existing residential area, they must pay to sound proof their venue.

We have launched a campaign to gain public support to lift our notice as well as raising awareness of the matter, which we consider to be highly unfair to our particular venue. Our aim is to get over 100k+ signatures so that we stand a chance of the matter being discussed in the House of Commons.

The benefits a live music venue brings to a town/city are enormous. It brings culture, creates employment and provides training for young professionals. Not to mention being a platform for local musicians to showcase their art and talent.

What you can do

Anyone who wants to support this matter needs to keep attending live music venues, write to local councillors/MPs and you can also sign our petition: http://www.change.org/en-GB/petitions/manchester-city-council-to-remove-our-statutory-nuisance-abatement-notice

Its no secret that a lot of small music venues across the country are struggling as a business regardless of the added financial constraints of court costs and additional sound proofing.

Special Shows

Were also going to be running a series of special high profile shows to help support our campaign.
100% of the profit will go towards our fighting fund and any extra will go towards a relevant worthwhile cause, which will be publicised.
