It’s been a tumultuous 18 months for music venues around Liverpool City Centre, with the well publicised happenings at the Static Gallery, MOJO cutting their live music programme, the Jacaranda shutting down without notice, Le Bateau closing its doors and Mello Mello facing a large bill from the council.

A series of tweets posted on their official Twitter page reads: “It comes with [...]
