ET Affected by The Licensing Act 2003 (439* d) RE: Affected by The Licensing Act 2003 28 Nov 05


There is one issue that is beyond the wit of even this Government to control and that is Breweries attitudes to Music. Sam Smiths via MD Humphrey has banned all music. Nellies in Beverley used to heave with musicians. Last Saturday night the Sun was packed to a local Irish Band (Punch the Horse) and Nellies was like a morgue, at least from the outside.

The other probem chain is Wetherspoons, now seeking premises in Beverley. They have no music. I have no issue with no background, jukebox or other piped music (Which Kim Howells confused with Pipe Music during the Licensing Bill debate). But many Wethrspoons pubs are vast and can take over trade from smaller, folk friendly venues.
