I think they are missing a picture of ann lucas with her taking credit for it!

Is this the old Rileys? How many people will fit in?

It was the Paris cinema at one point, but that was many, many years ago.

Saw the pics of the venue all done out and it looks fantastic.

It has also been Quazar (or a similar name), the Foundary Nightclub, Rileys and more recently Hush - a student nightclub.

Personally, haven't been yet but know a good few who went for the Eclipse Reunion and they say it is a great venue for live music and you have to say that the Libertines is a massive booking.

Fair play and good luck to all involved.

Haha was going to ask if the Telegraph had tried to credit the franchise; I'm sure that Simon Gilbert will be along soon. Or maybe not.

Didn't that get shut as the locals complained about the noise?
Not that I'm aware of and you'd have to say that there aren't actually many residents around that specific area. Plus Scholars has been over the road for years and they're still going strong.

Just had a quick google, I was thinking of the beer engine on the other side of the road.

Bad luck there chap
Would have been well up for this but knew I wouldn't have a chance, so offered my daughter and chap baby sitting services, even they with all their advantage couldn't get one.

Top gig. I'm sure the tour will be great but you can't beat seeing a band in a small venue.
