Bank Holiday jazz closes roads


A road closure order has been made by Rother District Council in respect of streets leading to and from the Town Hall over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

An application from the organisers of the Rye Jazz Festival sought the closure of East Street, Market Street and Lion Street from 12 noon to 4:30pm each day August 26-28 to all vehicular traffic except for residents’ access (Source: Rother District Council).

Jazz concerts in the Butter Market under the Town Hall (see photo above) led to complaints  last year and fresh  concerns being expressed this year.
