Southwark License Unit wrote:
Further to todays meeting, I can confirm that the decision of the Licensing Committee was that the licence was granted for the following
corporate events - total of 20 (hours as requested),
12 of the events to be used in December and no more than 2 in any other month.
cultural events - total of 30. 20 free to the public and alcohol at a total of 20 cultural events.
Event to finish at 22.30, alcohol to finish at 22.00 and live music to finish at 20.00.
Noise conditions as report 1 - 11 and 14.
The Committee section will provide us with the decision notice at some stage next week, which we will then forward on to you.

The noise conditions are listed here.

I attended this morning's Licensing Committee meeting and was impressed by the thoughtfulness and fairness of the 2 and a half hour hearings and am happy with this compromise. Some of the other issues (garbage, stewarding, hours of traffic...) are covered by Southwark's Events Policy which is part of the application.

and downstairs before the decision was made an eight page full colour brochure for 'a grand opening' - three days of world class outdoor performance and installation marking the opening of london's stunning new riverside park.

As I read it..

1. The opening celebrations are a one-off, so little concern surely..even a good thing and I suspect they don't need a license anyway.

2. The Corporate events have wisely been concentrated round Christmas (max 12), leaving max 8 slots the rest of the year. Total 20 down from 25. Your point about the unpleasant noise and fumes of 50+ taxis in Tooley Street was well made.

3. The Cultural events have been cut from max 55 to 30 with alcohol at max 20 per year, live music stopped by 8pm, and no alcohol served after 10pm on those 20 occasions.

The facts don't support your expenditure on KY lube tho, you never know, you could try it as toothpaste.

orkestra (sic) del sol - 'exubrant fanfare ...heady range of celebratory sound'
compost mentis 'whalley range all stars ... a compost heap ... gardener ... puppetry interventions.'
expressive fat 'spiral rig and exquisite aerial performance'
southwark dinner party 'four lavish dinner tables' for small carbon-based lifeforms
the strangelings 'expert theatrical gardeners'
the evergreens 'woodland themed alkabouts'
scarabeus 'poetic performance'
dotcomedy 'get lost' a maze

and after dark :
arts tout show 'terracotta firepots'
en vie 'luminescent sculpture'

Was anything done about permission for 5000 people max,which represents an excessive total number of people ,especially if anything green is to survive

Have to await details next week, but Stephen Cornford said he'd never want anything like that practice, I think, the number is not limited by the license, but by the event organisers and stewards. I think that crowd problems would validly trigger a license review, tho damage to the lawn should be disincentive enough. Stephen Cornford is very approachable if you want to discuss it direct -

thank odin for the rain saving us from 5000 tosca lovers ...

Personally I had been really looking forward to Tosca last night. I think Potters field is a great location for that type of event and should be used for just that sort of purpose. As a local I enjoy being able to go to so many events thats just dont exsist outside of London. Its one of the many reasons I love SE1 Im not even really an opera fan it seemsed silly to miss out on the opurtunity for myself and my family to see one for free.
