The Cellars in Eastney is a much loved music venue out at the easterly edge of the city, bringing music, comedy and theatre to the communities of Southsea, Milton & Eastney but with an audience from all over the south coast. We heard this morning the sad news that the venue will soon be closing its doors and, again, the city loses another vital venue for music. As recently as December Strong Island Recordings held our food bank fundraising all-dayer with the Cellars providing a warm welcome to bands coming down from near and far. Many promotors, bands and punters will be greatly saddened to see this place close its doors.
All the best to guys there for the future.
