Bars victorious in battle for live music in La Marina

SUMMER ENTERTAINMENT: bars can apply for entertainment license.

THE battle fought by bars in urbanisation La Marina to have entertainment and live music has been won. In what is believed to be a rare and unprecedented move, the Delegate of Alicante, Juan de Dios Navarro, has granted the municipality the right to offer establishments an entertainments licence.

It was in February that Euro Weekly News first spoke with Tommy Rogers, secretary of the San Fulgencio and La Marina Community President’s Associationabout the petition he was starting to get a by-law passed.

With support of Mayor Carlos Ramirez, the government team worked behind the scenes before the final go ahead was given during a meeting in Alicante. 

However, San Fulgencio Councillor Paulino Herrero said: “This is not a blank cheque.” He emphasised this will only work with the collaboration of everyone and stipulations will be in place. He said: “We are still working on the exact details but we will be visiting bars to inform them in the coming weeks.”

Tommy adds: “I see this as a brand new start and hopefully we can get La Marina back on the map. But it will be down to the bars to work together and not abuse this.”

It is expected that the permit will be free of charge and bars must cease all music and entertainment at midnight and bring in their outside tables and chairs at the end of each night.
