  • Night & Day, one of Manchester's oldest and most legendary independent venues, has been threatened with closure. The team launched a Change.org petition last week after being served with a noise abatement notice by Manchester City Council. "During lockdown a new resident moved to Manchester and to a property that's within close proximity to the venue," reads the petition text. "As the restrictions lifted and life retuned to the surrounding Northern Quarter area, we were able to put on our first live music event. The resident visited us next day and has since reported us to MCC a number of times." The text continues: "We ask for Manchester City Council Licensing to remove our noise abatement notice and for the Council to address the real issue here, which is that housing with ill-considered planning and construction has been approved and built next to a pre-existing live music business." Night & Day, which overcame a noise abatement notice in 2014, may close if the council doesn't U-turn. Opened in November 1991, the former chip shop is currently celebrating its 30th anniversary.
