Save The Fleece from closure

Recommended Posts

I'll let the link speak for itself but Bristol's iconic venue The Fleece is threatened by plans to convert an office building next door into flats. This is NOT a residential area and would threaten The Fleece with closure.

Signed. As a Bristolian, the Fleece is iconic, played there many times over the years. When I first started playing, the fleece and bierkeller were the two places all my young musician mates were desperate to play.

Signed.

There should be a special clause if the planning is granted...any new residents of the flats, who complain about any noise from the Fleece, should be placed in stocks outside the venue with a sign around them saying 'please throw rotten fruit at me as I am stupid'.

If you buy/live in a new residence next to an established venue, tough. It really boils my urine this sort of thing.

Signed.

Developer should be forced to soundproof the building,pay for any extra soundproofing needed at the Fleece and made to inform all purchasers that there is a music venue close by that they cannot complain about!

If they use any sort of wool insulation on The Fleece then The Fleece will be covered in fleece! Thanks for signing and sharing everyone. The Bristol Music Industry Network (Bmin) have been doing the same and we're almost at 30,000 signatures!

Signed.
We lost a great live music venue in Cardiff a few years ago for this very reason - one woman complained about the noise & that was it.

Done :)

Music venues seem to being closed down at an alarming rate recently, if it continues people wont have anywhere to share their music live to fans, a sad state of affairs !.

It looks like half the population of Bristol are talking about this. Hopefully the petition will do some good.
I've just this morning received a live recording of our Fleece gig earlier this month - we've done live recordings before, but there's something special about the Fleece.

A long long way to go but 18,000 signatures in a couple of days is good going. Keep the sigs coming in. I have a personal interest as I want to play there one day. :)
