The Northern Quarter Music Venue Band on the Wall has announced that it will be shutting its doors until September 2021
From September 2020 a total of 26 positions will be made redundant, including its entire casual workforce.
In a statement released today the venue said that:
“Before the COVID-19 crisis closed the entire music industry back in March, we had intended to run a full programme of gigs until the end of 2020, throw a huge party and temporarily close the venue until September 2021, when we re-open a bigger, better Band on the Wall following the building works.
COVID-19 means we’ve had to change our plans. We have taken the difficult but necessary decision to close early.
“Our last event before the renovation works will be our Closing Weekender on Fri 31st July – Sun 3rd August. We’ll then be shutting our doors until September 2021. We’ll still be producing gigs and tours in other venues across the country, and we look forward to welcoming everyone back to Band on the Wall next year.”
