Statement on Reopening

The government has today confirmed that restrictions around capacity at music venues will be lifted as of next Monday.

This means that we can finally dance again! We will be reopening for all planned gigs and events from WED 21st JULY, with the front bar reopening every day for our regulars too. We’ve got a cracking summer of shows in the calendar; head HERE to take a look….

However, as we move towards ‘personal responsibility’, we’d like to encourage our customers to treat each other and staff with respect. These are strange times, and in order to pull through this, respect needs to be at the heart of what we do not just as a venue, but as a society.

Funding success!!!

We’re delighted to announce that alongside some of York’s other venues and cultural organisations, we were successful in our application to the Cultural Recovery Fund!

As well as ACE and DCMS, we want to thank everyone who’s been supporting us, our incredible team and staff, as well as the musicians, engineers, and creatives who helped make our venue what it is.
