DQ, you obviously didnt have to get up to go to work to keep the country running today, yes it is selfish to keep people awake past a certain hour. You are obviously one of those people who only ever consider yourself rather than the wider community!

@leveller - both the events you speak about have strict licensing times which finish long before midnight . Why did this not apply to our rich chums in Glynde.

Possibly because licences are granted on an individual basis and Love Supreme happens way out in the countryside rather than in or close to a built up area? The residents of Glynde would have plenty of time to object to it should they have wished but I guess they aren't quite such a bunch of miseries as the sleepy folk of Lewes.

Also, "Nothing past 11" hasn't been a blanket licence term for about 10 years.

I am surprised you can hear music from Glynde. I would have thought the Fat woman's belly was in the way.

I love it when self-obsessed people can't find it in themselves to find any empathy with someone demonstrating the obvious signs of being kept awake by noise. It can be absolute torture No one has even asked, or established how loud it is. The only thing of interest seems to be the time. I have no idea if this is a problem or not, but I can imagine that 11 pm is very late to be kept awake if one gets up early or is on shifts. I know a few people who go to bed very early and they work in a hospice helping our dying relatives, other crucial and much respected jobs are available. I don't think any of my friends would object to a party, but they would make mincemeat of some of the disrespectful and selfish comments on here. If the noise is very loud and regular I advise contacting Environmental Health since part of being a Community is respecting and recognising the reasonable needs of everyone. If this is just a one off, then get some ear plugs and just tell whoever it is that you are a bit pee,ed off they didn't notify you in advance, and worse, didn't,t invite you!

I live just outside a small rural village and a third of a mile from the nearest road because I like peace and quiet. I love the sounds of nature and dark, star-pinpricked rural nights . A each year passes this enjoyment is reduced. We have been listening to Love Supreme since Friday. Tonight we have been listening to Love Supreme, Barcombe Village Hall and The Anchor Inn all at once. There is no peace and quiet in our garden most weekends during the summer now.
Lewes Live next week then....

Zeberdee, I understand exactly how you feel. I am sick of the selfishness of so many people. I had neighbours who behaved like this, so I started playing opera in the garden. Funnily they didn't like it! But how do we deal with pubs and places like the Pells? Lewes Environmental Health is a joke, don't want to deal with noise nuisance at all.

We heard music from Love Supreme at about 1130 on Friday, but just a dull thumping, nothing extreme. I'm a shift worker and frankly I find car noise and rowdy pub goers harder to deal with.
I've just returned from Love Supreme tonight and can't hear anything at all. Some of you lot need to take a chill pill. Great festival

Leicester Road are having a street party next week.....as they have done for donkey's years. I live in a nearby street and am subjected to their deafening noise all evening! There's this constant throb of disco music, and laughter. People having fun, getting together and having a thoroughly good time. It should be banned immediately!!!!!!! There's Proms in the Paddock coming up shortly where hundreds of people get to have a thoroughly wonderful time thanks to the unstinting hard work of the bonfire societies. There must be some way of putting a stop to that. Personally, I get more cheesed off with the neighbour who fires up the barby and decides to rev up the strimmer just as I'm trying to catch up with the Archers Omnibus. At least it's only once or twice a year compared to having to put up with the drunken hoards puking and wending their way back from the pubs and clubs at silly 'o' clock in the morning at the tops of their voices.

Any particular point you are making with your nasty little homophobic insult? It isn,t even related to the subject, so no one can defend it as some kind of unpleasant but valid opinion.

I can't believe that people are really defending the view that Love Supreme (or any other event that attracts hundreds or thousands of people) should be made to stop early in case one or two people have to get up for work the next day, regardless of the selfless nature of their jobs!
I doubt the licensing people, nor the festival organisers, had any idea that the wind or atmospheric conditions might be such that the noise travelled further than it usually would. Sometimes these things can't be helped.
Wouldn't it be easier for the individuals concerned, who know they have to get up early on weekends for work and who also know that on occasion there might be an evening event or, god forbid, a house party in their street, to keep a set of earplugs somewhere in the house for this eventuality?
That way the hundreds of revellers can, within reason, enjoy themselves whilst not 'inconveniencing' one person - as long as the event is finished up by the time their licence states then there shouldn't be a problem.
We've all got to get by on the overcrowded island, and I think everyone (including the people complaining because their lifestyle doesn't fit the 'usual' monday to friday 9-5 regime) should try to show a bit of understanding.

Instant cure--Boots own brand silicone earplugs. Comfy. Barely know they are there apart from a train could go through your bedroom and you wouldn't know it! Much easier than hating on the people enjoying themselves in this fine weather in this beautiful area of the world.

You've missed the point Bob. Each year the volume level and frequency of outside events increases such that many country dwellers around Lewes rare!y get a quiet night any more.

I'm a shift worker. The answer to anyone else's noise day or night is ear plugs and double glazing. It's harder doing nights in the summer but blackout curtains make all the difference. And long live summer festivals !
