The venue caused a stir earlier in the year when it said that all music events were cancelled.

However just a day later they confirmed that the events were back on "after a lot of emails backwards and forwards we have come to an arrangement with the building owner and our music bookings".

In February the venue also said it was working hard to keep going, and had introduced new staff to make sure service improved.

It added on facebook: "As the old adage says, 'it takes years to get a good rep and one night to lose it'".

They added that it was a "daily struggle" to keep an independent venue going.
