Koko temporarily closed due to “structural issue”

By | Published on Thursday 27 September 2018


Camden’s Koko venue will be closed until next month, it has been announced, so that “a structural issue” can be dealt with. Several shows affected by the closure have been moved to other venues, while others have been cancelled.

Operations Director of the venue’s owner Mint Group, Larry Seymour, says in a statement: “Our consultant surveyors recently made us aware of a structural issue with this 117 year old building. The protection and well-being of our customers and staff is of paramount importance and we have therefore decided to close the venue while work is carried out”.

“We place the utmost value on our relationships with our clients”, he continues. “But we were unable to work around the diary. The nature of the work means that there is no alternative to a full closure. We offer sincere and heartfelt apologies to all our clients and customers who have been affected by the closure”.

He concludes: “Our contractors are working diligently and at all speed to ensure that we are able to welcome back a full programme of events as soon as possible”.

Currently shows between 27 Sep and 15 Oct are affected. See a full list here, including new venues where shows have been moved.
