“no ID, no entry” = No thanks!
We have decided to postpone the event scheduled for the 24th April 2009.
Following a murder at our current venue – seOne London – last October, Southwark Council’s licensing committee has introduced additional licensing conditions, including a mandatory “no ID, no entry” door policy. This requires that ticket holders present valid photo ID at the door which gets scanned and permanently stored in a commercial database.
This presents us with a dilemma. Audience safety and security has always been one of our priorities, we have a great stewarding team to compliment the venue’s security team, and you are generally a very peaceful crowd. We’ve never seen a serious incident at the 25 events we’ve held over the last 6 years at seOne.
However, we have grave concerns about the creeping loss of privacy that ID cards represent – the campaigning group NO2ID is one of the many NGOs that have attended our events, and we support their position wholly. We don’t want our magical event to become a component part of the intrusive database state. We are sure that you agree.
We have been trying to find a suitable multi-room venue, but nothing has become available within the time-frame. So we have to cancel April’s event whilst we find a new home. We feel that the long term survival of the project is more important than a single show or temporary set-back.
We shall return in the Autumn after the festival season, at a new location with something very special. Come and be creative with us then.
If you have bought a ticket already, it will be valid at the next event. Alternatively, you can obtain a full refund by contacting the ticket office (Access All Areas in Camden).
With light, love, and fulfilling experiences…
The Luminopolis team.
