Islington Mill moves weekend events after noise complaints

Music and art space Islington Mill, Salford, is moving two scheduled shows after noise complaints resulted in the Council putting its license under a seven day assessment period. Two shows this weekend – Dopplereffekt (8 August) and Daniel Avery, A Love From Outer Space, and Craig Bratley (9 August) – will both be moved to alternative venue Antwerp Mansion, an arts space in Rusholme.

In a statement, the venue said: "There is a high possibility that the outcome of our review will include some kind of revision to our 24-hour license. We are sensitive to the needs of our neighbours and keen to avoid animosity and upset, and to that end we have submitted an extensive proposal of short term and longer term methods to limit the impact of sound and outdoor activity on our neighbours."

The venue, which recently secured Arts Council Funding, has volunteered to add soundproof doors, on site sound monitoring, plus internal and external alterations, and are trying to work with the council to maintain their current 24-hour license. For updates follow @IslingtonMill.
