Hugh’s Room Forced to Move Due to Rent Hike
As many of you will now have heard, that despite months of negotiations with our landlord, we have failed to come to agreement on terms based on fair market value. As a result we will be forced to close our doors at our current location on March 31, 2020.
It is our intention to honour as many of our show bookings and tickets as possible, but it is going to take us a bit of time to secure an alternate venue. We are confident that all shows on the calendar will have a home and as soon as an alternate venue is secured, we will be notifying all ticket holders immediately. We ask patrons to kindly not reach out to our box office for updates in the interim.
