The Party at B2 Hotel was in conjunction with The Ministry of Sound
and, to my knowledge, is the first party since the opening of the Square, in May last year. It ran from 6pm until 10pm - though I believe there was a sound check during the day.
'Local Residents' [ie. those in the B2 flats] were invited - but the sound did travel much further.
I was there - although it is not my kind of music at all - and we discussed the sound issue, insofar as I'm glad I don't live closer! Sound can really
cause distress and over a period of time, at that level, I think I would have left the area....
What can be done? Well, perhaps to extend the invitations further or publicise such events more widely to prepare people.
It is not
a regular occurance - but they are planning another one on August Bank Holiday weekend.
