WE GOT IT!
by Jez Bond
At 6pm this evening Dave Hughes, Melli Bond and I walked into the council chambers for the licensing committee hearing…..
We had over 80 letters in support and no objections from local residents. Only the police had raised a concern over the late hours – and were due to be represented by a key superintendent on the force. Despite much council support, including from the current mayor, the MP for North Islington and all the local ward councillors, we needed to present effectively and demonstrate clearly how this would be a safe and well run establishment – which would be a valuable asset to the area.
At 7.30pm we emerged with a late licence for The Park Theatre.
We got it. All our hard work has paid off. We’re very happy to start out with the flexibility that we need – and we won’t let you down!
