Falmouth’s popular Arwenack Club has joyfully declared “We’re back!” after seeing a noise abatement order lifted.

Last month Cornwall Council confirmed it was investigating noise levels at the club in Arwenack Street after "complaints" were made by "members of the public.”

A Noise Abatement Notice was subsequently served on March 16, preventing any live music from taking place there while an investigation was carried out by Cornwall Council’s community protection team.

For a club known for its bands and weekend entertainment it was a bitter blow, and led to claims that it could leave its future “under threat.”

However, supporters of the club were galvanised into action, setting up an online and paper petition of support that gathered more than 2,600 signatures in total.

Helen Dale, who set up the petition, described the support as “phenomenal.”

Now there are celebrations in order, after the club learned on Wednesday afternoon that the noise abatement order had been lifted – meaning entertainment is back on this weekend.

Announcing the news on Facebook, Wendy and Jayne from the Arwenack Club said: “We’re back! As of this weekend we are back doing what we do best.

“We would like to take this time to thank absolutely everyone for their outstanding support. It has blown us away!

“We hope to see you all this weekend. Party on!”

The club has an entertainment licence until midnight, with karaoke regularly held on a Friday from 8pm to 11.45pm, a disco on a Saturday night between the same times, and live music on Sunday afternoon which goes from 4pm to 7pm.

It is based out of the former Royal British Legion building in Falmouth, which occupied the site for more than 100 years before it was disbanded in 2013, with branch members electing to amalgamate with the Penryn Branch.

The petition in support of the club had said of the noise abatement order: “This not only means that locals and visitors are deprived of the entertainment provided by one of the town's most popular venues, but that the Arwenack Club itself is under threat of closure which would result in the loss of 14 jobs - not to mention the loss of a venue to local bands and DJs and the income to them.

“In addition to its entertainment, the club also provides a quiet place to meet for a lot of locals and visitors during the day time, seven days a week.”

With the threat now lifted, this weekend’s entertainment is likely to be extra celebratory.
