Manchester City Council

to remove our Statutory Nuisance Abatement Notice

      Gareth Butterworth

      Manchester, United Kingdom

We are extremely upset and distressed by the notice as we believe we are a key part of Manchester and have been for 23 years!

This one resident has lived here for less than 1 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 will bring to an end the employment of everyone who works here, not to mention, destroy one of the major hubs for live music, for both local and international musicians.

We have worked tirelessly making the venue as sound proof as possible whilst spending thousands of none funded money to making sure the venue is extremely environmentally friendly. 

We have tried to speak to the resident to try and explain the nature of our business and we thoroughly understand noise can be annoying to any ordinary person but why would you chose to move next door to a live music venue if noise is going to be an issue?

Please do not let this one complaint ruin what has been a great benefit to the people and city of Manchester!

Thank You

Night and Day staff

      IF YOU DON'T LIKE NOISE MOVE TO A RESIDENTIAL AREA DON'T MOVE NEAR A MUSIC VENUE - DO YOUR RESEARCH!!! Total institution of NQ and manchester music scene. One of the first and favourite places i visited when I moved to manc in 2001. Nowhere else could replace this venue if it shut.

      Because Night and Day is a staple to the Manchester live music scene and it's wrong that somebody who chose to buy a place of residence next to it knowing that they were buying a place next to a live music venue should have the power to force Night and Day to close.

      Quite frankly, it's ridiculous.

      As a supporter af all independant, small business ventures, and as a live music advocate, and having previously lived above a small cafe/ music venue in London, England - I feel that community leaders everywhere should support small businesses - especially those businesses that have been alive for nearly an entire generation, and may go somewhere towards defining an area. If there is indeed a new resident that has moved to this area, and retrospectively does not like what has been obviously going on for years, I feel that they should consider moving themselves, rather than requiring a community to change its vibe to fit them. I have personally put up with the noise/ vibration late on friday or sat nights, as I knew this was likely to happen when I moved in - I also reached out to the business and they were reasonable enough to make some changes that helped limit the noise conditions somewhat, and we all got along happily knowing that we had each made some concessions.

      Manchester needs venues which promote affordable music. If people don't like living near good bars they should move somewhere quieter. Night and day is a manchester institution as is the manchester music scene. I feel it would be a shame to ruin this because some people has moved in near an existing bar ridden area and then complain about the noise. Keep manchester musically vibrant
