Do the Pells have any decibel monitoring? It's thumping all through my house. I can't hear my music or television without deafening myself.

Unfortunately, noise from the Pells is not just for one night. Last night was particularly bad but there is frequent music noise during the summer and I don't intend to ' get over it'. The Pells Management Committee need to enforce a decibel monitoring agreement when they hire it out. I'd be interested to hear from any of them as to whether they have any clause about noise in their contracts.

Celine, honestly its summer (haha) it didn't go on all night. If these things didn't happen the Pells would probably close as it wouldn't financially viable. No one is trying to hijack your life. Get over yourself.

To the disgust of right-thinking people, if an event is proposed under the terms of a Temporary Event Notice, it is now the district council's policy to approve it if there are no objections, rather than to carry out a full and proper investigation into potential noise levels, disturbance, or whether or not the event is actually decent and necessary. This is a very poor situation but my dozens of letters of objection when I hear about public events changed nothing. Time to vote in councillors who will put residents first, and a police commissioner who will, as a matter of policy, prohibit events with outdoor noise or alcoholic drinks.

So I have worked on the event couple of times and know that professional sound engineers and programmers work on the event. One of their priorities will be noise control.
It doesnt go on till very late so i don't see the need for such a moan. Keep your opinions to yourself, surely you didnt expect people to complain with you when such a fundraiser brings the community together. Fundraiser can I reiterate which is a charity event done for a good cause.
Please dont put such a downer on a quite beautiful event which has been a part of the town for years.

I have just seen someone write "keep your opinions to yourself", to a Lewes resident who rightly demands the quiet enjoyment of their evening and night undisturbed by so-called "entertainment". You, "keep your opinions to yourself", must now think very carefully about what you have written.

It was a great night for a great cause. It finished at 10.30 on the dot. I am so thankful that we live in a thriving, vibrant community where people work for nothing to entertain and raise thousands for community projects.
Thanks Phil & Tongue and Groove, its one of the best family friendly nights of the year.

Hello all, as a professional London sound engineer and somebody who has worked on many outdoor events including this one, I have to say that noise control/levels is something that we take very seriously. The position of the speakers that are used at these events is designed, however due to the nature of being outdoors, the environment has a lot to play in regards to the sound movement. E.g sometimes you can be miles away from a busy road but hear it crystal clear and sometimes you could be a few hundred yards from a busy road and not hear it at all. The other consideration is that the events in Lewes and around the country work very closely with the environmental department to ensure that strict time and noise limits are adhered to, which they were at this event. The bands encore was stopped due to these restrictions. From personal experience, however, I have never worked in a place where a minority of the citizens are so unwelcoming and often anti social in themselves. I have worked on an event in Lewes where I have seen dog walkers in there fifties lift up Heras fencing and throw it on the floor simply because they can't take there normal dog walking route, even though alternative routes were made.

Well I have to say that it sounded as if it was in my back garden. The other problem is that some people think they can do something similar and if you object they point to events like at the Pells as justification. I have had this happen with a neighbour. Suppose we all did it, life would be hell.

Just to Justify I trained in Sussex and was born and bred in Lewes so understand both sides of the coin. Of course I realise Lewes is not London, however we do share the same rules and regulations, unfortunately working in events you can never please everybody and people have the right to have a voice and complain, which is what is great about the country we live in.

Music lover, I have direct debits to charities going out of my bank account every month.
It sounded like there was more music from the Pells last night though not nearly as bad and ended early. We did have to close a window so we could hear the TV properly. I'd be really interested in hearing from any of the Pells management committee as to what agreement they have regarding noise when they rent out the Pells. I believe the chair is Conrad Kyle who lives in Hawkenbury Way. Conrad - I'd really like to hear from you. Perhaps you'd like to pop over to my house next time we suffer this so you can hear it too? If you do live in Hawkenbury Way you are probably not forced to hear it there!

According to the event notice, the "charities" supported to the tune of £7,000 by the noisy event sound1 helped at were "Starfish" and "Landport and Malling Summer Playscheme". Because they are described in the earlier post as "charities", I require their registered charity numbers. Please post them here.

This was a very well organised event and a great success. Noise levels at the nearest property were below 65dB A weighted so donít constitute a nuisance under current legislation.

Danny, as the sound engineer in previous posts has explained, you can be close to noise and not hear it and be further away and it hear it very clearly. If you are talking about the nearest property being in the Pells, they will behind the stage area where there is also a wall I believe. Noise is like water, it travels the way of least resistance so I'm afraid what you are saying is meaningless. I'm sure Sound 1 will confirm.
