In January 2008, The Jailhouse was advised by Herefordshire Council to stop doing 16+ gigs as it \'promoted underage drinking\'. Venues in big cities up and down the country are able to do 16+ gigs (some even do 14+ or all ages) so why not here With the likes of Los Campesinos, The Young Knives, Hot Chip, iForward Russia! and many more due to grace The Jailhouse stage in the coming months, it\'s time to ensure that our city\'s younger music fans are able to enjoy it. Please sign this petition, and forward it to your friends. It will then be taken to the council\'s licencing department, along with a gaurantee that everyone will be ID\'d coming in to the club, and different coloured wristbands issued to under 18\'s to prevent them drinking, and over 18\'s only be allowed to purchase one drink at a time - the same system used nationwide. Let\'s get this sorted!

Jimi Lunt, United Kingdom4 years ago Comments: Having places for younger people to go and enjoy themselves is a good thing, without them, they would just go out to the park and (possibly) drink. at least at a club, they would be in a place where there is some supervision.
Amie Hiles, United Kingdom5 years ago Comments: There is nothing else for the young kids to do, bars just have to be more strict asking for ID.
