Firstly may I say how sorry I am that this site is closing down. it has been a huge help over the last 4 years for gigs, band members, sales and purchases etc. All the very best and thanks to Mr NWB

A few months ago the Walmesley advertised for bands on here and I replied The agreed date was the 17th July. Last week I organised posters but prior to sending them I tried to contact them but to no avail. One of my band members even made a personal visit yesterday lunch but the place was closed. I did finally get a reply via FB saying they had no knowledge of our booking. Fortunately I was able to send Screen shots of the communication between us. I sent them but received no reply, let alone an apology. I did manage to get a phone number of the 'new' manager and I spoke to him today. He didn't seem particularly bothered let alone apologetic. the upshot is we are NOT playing there on Sunday.
It might be an idea to give this guy a ring if you are booked there just to check you aren't on a 'wild goose chase' . His name is Dave Woods and his number is 07718 497685
