London's The Coronet to close in 2017

After years of battling to save the iconic London venue, management at The Coronet have announced that the venue is soon to shut down.

The Coronet has been one of the capital's longest running venues with 136 years under its belt, but with adjacent plans to build a new shopping centre on the Elephant & Castle site, the venue only managed to extend its lease until the 5th January 2017.

Speaking on the closure, venue director Richard Littman said, “We’ve worked with our landlord to extend our lease for one final year... We’re looking forward to welcoming back old friends and making new ones – if you’ve ever wanted to perform here then get in touch quick – the calendar is filling up fast.

“Rather than fighting against change, we want to focus on celebrating The Coronet’s incredible history. What better way to do that than by making The Coronet’s final year of operation its biggest and best!”

If you are one of those people that would like to perform at the venue in its final year, then you can get in touch via their website http://coronettheatre.co.uk
