Thread Name: UK Licensing Act - another petition.
Subject: RE: UK Licensing Act - another petition.
Good idea although the Govt takes little notice of petitions. Today I was in a Sam Smiths pub as part of a C17 reenactment group. A few of us sang some early caroles and one played a medieaval wooden recorder (very skillfully). Many of the folk in the pub stopped yattering and joined in obviously enjoying it. The landlady ran from downstairs saying we were in breach of the breweries rules about no music so we stopped, to the annoyance of all concerned. Agreed this is the Brewery, not the Government but the pub no longer had a music licence and the ban was just as effective.
