MUSIC ON PATIOS
The London Music Office submitted an important letter of request to the Planning and Environment Committee to bring forward a by-law amendment that would see a pilot program allowing amplified entertainment and dancing (yes, dancing!) on patios during the trial period of August 1 – September 30th, 2016. Current by-law only allows acoustic non-amplified music on patios throughout the city. Planning Division is drafting a report to take back to PEC in July. A Community Consultation Meeting is scheduled Tuesday, June 28th from 6-8pm at St. Paul’s Auditorium (533 Clarence Street but fronts on Richmond St).
The music community continues to grow in London! The latest addition is London BluesFest scheduled over three days Aug 26 – 28 in Victoria Park. Main stage performances will take place in Victoria Park until 11pm each day with a 5 bar blues program taking place after 11pm at live music venues throughout the city. Stay tuned for artist announcements!
