Save the Golden Cross

Due to the (in)actions of the previous owner The Golden Cross in Coventry has lost it's entertainments license A pettition has been set up at

Usually there are live bands every Thursday and Saturday and an Acoustic night every wednesday, for the time being the band nights have had to be stopped and the acoustic nights are still running  but completely unplugged. This is actually ridiculous as I normallylook after the sound on wednesday nights, last week the enviromental health people were there setting a limiter on the PA for recorded music(or rather getting someone else to as they appear completely clueless as to even the basics of how a PA works). They are actually quite happy for us to play recorded music through the PA at volumes far louder than I would want to, however we are not allowed to plug in an acoustic guitar and a vocal mic, such is the stupidity of the law.
