Apollo appeal quashed
Music venue fails to win licence to open till 2am
Hammersmith Apollo’s bid to run events for several thousand people until 2am up to 20 times a year was quashed by District Judge Susan Williams on Wednesday (June 4).
The Apollo had initially applied to H&F Council’s Licensing Committee but had been turned down. They then appealed to local magistrates. Judge Williams also awarded costs to the Council.
Queues to enter the Apollo stretch down Fulham Palace Road on busy evenings and residents have reported people urinating outside their homes, getting jostled when trying to cut through crowds to enter their estate and discarded fast food getting thrown into their gardens - which they say has attracted rats and other vermin.
