They put up a good fight, but esteemed Leeds club Canal Mills have finally called it a day.
News of its closure first surfaced in August 2018, when plans for a property redevelopment appeared to spell the end. However, the club - located inside a historic eighteenth century textile mill - was given six more months to live following a lease renegotiation.
Over a year on from that initial announcement and Canal Mills - which first opened its doors back in 2012 - will now cease to operate.
Posting a statement to their social media channels, the team behind the venue said: 'With a very heavy heart we can now say that it's official - Canal Mills has closed its doors.
'Since 2012, our beloved venue has played a huge part in the Leeds music landscape; bringing some of the best artists and events on the planet to the city.
'Thank you to every single one of you for being a part of it, without you, we wouldn't have lasted 7 years.'
