Mid week menu -18 to 20 September 2018

We received a demand for £550 to renew our music licence! We can only accommodate 24 people and all we do is play cd’s that we have already bought as background music for a few hours each evening. Do you think anyone would notice or care if we just unplugged the thing and saved the money?
