Quay Arts will be able to open later.
QUAY Arts will be able to open later, thanks to a decision by the Isle of Wight Council.
At a meeting on Monday, last week, councillors agreed to extend the Newport arts centre’s hours, with films, dance and plays now allowed to be shown until 12.30am.
Live and recorded music must end at midnight, however alcohol can be sold until 12.30am. The hours were less than had been originally applied for.
Several neighbours had objected, however ward member Cllr Julie Jones-Evans, said residents supported Quay Arts and the new licence conditions balanced the needs of the centre with the rights of neighbours.

Jake, whenever I see a mime artist performing in Newport, I always make sure I put my hand in my pocket & throw in some invisible money, it always gets a laugh.My Uncle who is a retired police officer said there is a only one way to commit the perfect murder in front of witnesses. You simply put a mime artist in an airtight glass box. Nobody suspects a thing ;)

"Live and recorded music must end at midnight, however alcohol can be sold until 12.30am" Oh this sounds joyous."Several neighbours had objected" I am not surprised."the new licence conditions balanced the needs of the centre with the rights of neighbours" Does it? Does anyone in licencing actually live next to noise and drunks?Tell me also, for what possible reason could there be for serving alcohol at 12:29 while watching men in tights walk off stage? Anyone?Drinking until 12:30am, is never a good thing for those living on your walk home.I do hope that the Quay Arts centre will be reprimanded if/when drunken behaviour is traced back to their extended drinking time.I do feel sorry for neighbouring properties, but, when faced with buying a home one should not choose one near a place such as this.i.e. you do not buy a house at the end of a runway then moan about the noise of the planes taking off.
