Shepherd's Bush Empire Closed Until March

Pity the poor Shepherd's Bush Empire. At the end of last year they discovered structural faults in their roof, and the venue is to remain closed until March 31st at the earliest.  Cancelled gigs include They Might Be Giants, Gabrielle Aplin and Ed Byrne. 

All these acts have been been moved to other London venues. If you have a ticket to one of these events you will still get to go - but not in Shepherd's Bush. Complicating the repairs is the fact that the Empire is Grade II listed - which means that the existing fabric of this early Edwardian building has to be maintained as it is.
