Stop Nuisance Neighbours Closing Venues Petition

Recommended Posts

It appears that there is a petition to stop folks moving into areas adjacent to known music venues and then complaining about the noise until the venue is closed down, depriving both venue workers and bands of employment. As the MU say, "Keep music live."

Yes. They get the place cheap because it's next to a music venue, then try to get the venue closed so as to make a killing on the property price. Some a'hole tried this in the case of a well know North London traditional music venue I frequent. He didn't get far.

Signed and shared - get this everywhere. One venue out my way has been going for over 20 years and is getting hassle not from a new neighbour, but a developer who has done up a nearby house and thinks he can up the price without a music pub nearby.. arsehole...

Sorted. A venue I play every now & then in Milton Keynes have had a Sikh temple move nearby which is trying to get the venue shut down. Many roads/estates in MK they could have moved to but no, has to be next to a music venue then complain about the noise.
