Womanby Street has lost one of the clubs that was under threat of closure thanks to the lack of interest from Cardiff City Council. The Full Moon has been forced to close its doors.
Their statement on Facebook reads:
It is with broken hearts that we have to announce that the Full Moon is closed.
For five and a half glorious years we have been fortunate enough to be a part of the greatest street on the planet helping give a platform to the most amazing music community.
We have given every ounce of blood, sweat, tears and money we have but following some difficult trading and the current air of uncertainty our creditors have lost confidence in our long term sustainability and taken action.
This city is home to some of the most wonderfully talented people in the music industry as well as one of the most open minded and informed audiences and we will do everything in our power to reduce the impact on all that have supported us over the years.
Independent grassroots venues across the country and in our city are generally run on a shoestring by people with huge passion so please support the other treasures we have like Clwb, Fuel, Porters, Gwdihw, Buffalo, Undertone, the Big Top, the Andrew Buchan and of course the national treasure that is Womanby Street. #savewomanbystreet
It’s been a wild rollercoaster ride and we have loved every minute, thank you Cardiff, you rock!! Fine music, hard liquor forever.
The Full Moon
This is a devastating blow to the #SaveWomanbyStreet campaign. A loss of confidence in the ability for clubs in the street to maintain their profitability has resulted in one less live music venue for visitors and residents of our City and beyond.
