!!!URGENT!!!July Events Restricted - Your Help Needed
« on: July 03, 2008, 12:38:50 pm »

here is the craic...

OUR EVENTS IN JULY HAVE BEEN RESTRICTED



Firstly, there have been no objections whatsoever to The Duchess from the police, the fire authorities, York City Council, local traders or neighbours. None. Everybody seems to want this to happen, and we have conformed to every regulation and request.



However, Barfly don't want the people of York to have The Duchess. God knows, we're trying to give it you but, after pages and pages of irrelevant objections and legal argument from the multi-million pound company that owns Fibbers, we have had to submit to an enquiry. This will be held on or before July 28.



York City Council have been unbelievably supportive but recommend that we bring matters to a head, and so the issue of opening this live music venue is being put before an independent panel. We fully expect to win.



However, in case of this happening and to preserve some of the July shows, we had the foresight to apply for a number of Temporary Event Notices to cover the following events:



FRIDAY JULY 4 AND SATURDAY JULY 5

FRIDAY JULY 11

WEDNESDAY JULY 15

SATURDAY JULY 19

MONDAY JULY 21

WEDNESDAY JULY 24



If you really agree with opening the live music venue that everybody in York has wanted for so long; and if you genuinely believe that we pose no threat to public safety, local traders and neighbours or even our own customers, please drop us a line, start your own petition, anything! Your messages of support will be presented to the enquiry.



Thank you for the already overwhelming amount of goodwill messages (before we have even opened!) and we promise that we will fight as hard as we can to bring this to you as soon as possible!!


If you could help us out by sending in messages of support, or showing your support via one of the facebook groups - http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/group.php?gid=27680350389&ref=nf then this would be greatly appreciated.

cheers for the support, if people could do us a favour and join the facebook group and post a message of support on the wall then that would be fantastic. This will be shown to the council in the enquiry and it will make a difference. Everyone in York stands to benefit from this, the knock on effect to local businesses and the tourism industry is impressive when you have a 500 capacity venue capable of holding the sort of bands who usually only stop off at leeds, newcastle or manchester. etc etc.
