For this task I decided to sign a petition which meant something to me. The petition was to save a music venue which has been a key part of Manchester for the past 23 years. There is currently a resident who has been living there less than one year and his threat could end an independent run business which has been a firm staple in the Manchester arts scene for over two decades. This would bring an end to the employment of everyone who works here, and also destroy one of the major hubs for live music, for both local ad international musicians.
The business has worked tirelessly making the venue as sound proof as possible whilst spending thousands if none funded money to making sure the venue is extremely environmentally friendly.
The business has tried speaking to the resident to explain the nature of their business and they know that noise can be annoying to any ordinary person but why choose to move next door to a live music venue if noise is going to be an issue?
So I signed the petition, which has now reached its target of 50,000 signatures. I’m glad I took part in supporting to remove the Statutory Nuisance Abatement Notice of The Night & Day Cafe as I have been here a huge amount of times, and they have always supported local talent, whether it be musicians or artists.
