You may have read about our ceiling woes on Twitter or in the latest Chorley Guardian.

Just to let you know, we're still completely open and operating normally. It's just really annoying. To explain: when we did all the roof work over the last 2 years, we discovered corners of the back of the building that were still letting in water, and have been steadily trying to sort them out. We're using the waterproof rubber from Neville's Island's lake to lay a new roof at the back of the building, and thought it would be done by now...

...unfortunately there's been a lot of storms lately and water has found it's way in. Eventually the ceiling in the storage area collapsed under the weight and we were left with a big mess to tidy up. Thanks to our dedicated volunteers, we've tidied up and everything was fine for Rob Rouse's show on Saturday 21st.

We're now bringing forward plans for the area, which will eventually involve us creating new much-needed female toilet space. But it's all costing money, so please come to our shows to help us pay for it!

We're hoping the renovation work will be ready to view at the CADOS AGM on Friday 22nd July.

It may be Friday 13th but it's far from disastrous here as we've added loads of new shows. Get 'em while they're hot!

All tickets are from Malcolm's Musicland 01257 264362 or go here.

We still have some available for Friday and Saturday nights, but are down to a few single seats for the rest of the week.
