SIR - I am in total agreement with Mrs Furlonger regarding the sheer volume in some venues. I was in the audience for the Lord Mayor's show earlier this year, and the volume in the Gordon Craig theatre was so high that our actual bodies were vibrating and we could hear it perfectly whilst in the bar. It certainly wasn't pleasant during the musical parts, and if we hadn't been there to see our granddaughter perform, we would have left fairly quickly. Why is it necessary to have the sound system so loud?
