Birmingham city centre music venue The Flapper has announced it is to continue trading for another twelve months, following expectations that it was to close later this month.
In February 2018, the canalside pub and established indie, rock, punk and metal haunt revealed it would close permanently on Saturday 30 June to make way for a new residential development.
In a release today, The Flapper confirmed:
We have today accepted a twelve-month lease extension from our landlord, Baskerville Wharf.
Please see below for Baskerville Wharf’s official statement:
“Baskerville Wharf, the owners of The Flapper public house, has offered The Flapper Ltd business an extension of twelve months whilst we continue our discussions with Birmingham City Council.
Plans were submitted in November 2017 for the site’s redevelopment and whilst we withdrew the current application, we are considering the submission of revised proposals later in 2018.
The Flapper Ltd has accepted our offer and will now remain open for business until Sunday 30 June 2019.”
All ‘Celebration Of The Flapper’ events will continue to take place. We have a few details to sort through regarding the ‘Final Weekend of Friday 29th and Saturday 30the June, so please keep an eye on the Facebook event page for further details.
Please help us spread the word that the Flapper is staying open. We’ll be getting out heads down booking in some great shows and organising some amazing events for the next twelve months.
