COVID-19 UPDATE

In light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and recent UK government advice we have decided to cancel all of our upcoming events until further notice.

This hasn’t been an easy decision but the safety and well-being of the public and staff must be a priority at this time. All ticket holders will be refunded at the point of purchase.

We will be speaking to our venues on a regular basis to see when we can safely return to promoting events. 

As independent promoters this is going to have huge financial implications for us so please bare with us over the coming months as we work this out. 

We hope to reschedule all club nights and gigs later in the year when things are a little clearer. Stay safe.
