Covent Garden’s oldest music venue under threat of eviction
 Add to favorites

Covent Garden’s oldest music venue The Roadhouse has been faced with eviction, and has launched a petition to seek help.

The venue’s petition – which garnered over 4,000 signatures in under 24 hours – outlines that property developers and Roadhouse landlords Capco have threatened the venue with eviction as part of redevelopment works in the area.

The owners write: “In recent years more and more of the amazing independent bars, clubs, restaurants, shops and businesses that we believe make London the amazing and colourful place it is today have been forced out by huge corporate property development companies who are changing the culture and DNA of London. We are fed up of hearing about London’s bars and clubs being forced out by developers and councils who ignore what the people who live, work and socialise in central London actually want.”

Former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman adds: “The Roadhouse has been one of London’s best loved live music venues for the past 25 years. There are few places left in Central London which champion up and coming live music, 7 nights a week. It’s venues like The Roadhouse which give musicians the opportunity to play in front of live audiences. I myself have enjoyed playing at The Roadhouse with my band The Rhythm Kings. To lose it would be a devastating loss for London’s live music scene.”
