Old Market Update

Published by on Sunday, 21 February 2010No Comment

Regular readers will recall the article we ran in the December issue of REGENCY about the Old Market. We can now report that the Old Market Trust has folded, and re-opened the same day as a private company. Regrettably this means that many performers have been left with unpaid bills. It seems they are not alone – the arts venue also owed the taxman £240,000. The rumour is that Barclay’s Bank have now sold the building to a ‘happy-clappy’ church. The good news (get it? ‘Good News’ and church? Oh never mind) is that it will probably still be used as a venue for events.
