Cult party venue Canal Mills will stay open until the middle of next year after negotiating an extension with the landlords.
Canal Mills was expected to close in the new year with the venue and the surrounding site earmarked for re-development.
But it was announced last night that The Canal Mills Estate has agreed the lease extension while it finalises the plans.
Canal Mills’ director, Mark Newton, said: “We are really happy to announce this extension to the Canal Mills lease which will allow us to hold events in the space up until summer.
“We have some very special shows to announce alongside the return of the hugely successful Garden Parties which will take place on the May Bank Holiday weekends.
“We have been making progress with the opening of our new venue which will now happen in Autumn 2019, but our current landlords have been kind enough to extend our lease which will allow us to operate all our shows in the interim period”.
The closing new year parties will still take place with Disciples, Danny Howard, Waze & Odyssey on December 31 and Gerd Jansen, Paul Woolford, PBR Streetgang and others on New Year’s Day.
