Venuewatch: Oxford Regal remains sealed

Odd goings-on in Oxford, where the only-just-expensively-refurbished Regal Venue has remained closed after its New Year holiday. (Actually, isn't a venue which could hold a New Year's Event not holding one a bit odd in its own right?)

Last week, partner Charlie McCreedy told the Oxford Mail it was due to a change in shareholders and he hoped it would reopen last Friday.

But the club remained shut, with planned weekend events cancelled at short notice, and neither Mr McCreedy nor manager Michael Keel were available for comment.

The team running the Regal had previously been in charge at the much-missed Zodiac; lets hope that this is a glitch rather than the end.
