Manchester’s Gorilla and Deaf Institute venues are saved as buyer is found!

Gorilla Punk

Two Manchester music venues, Gorilla and The Deaf Institute have been given a financial lifeline and saved from closure. Their closure was reported by Punktuation last week, but in an 11th hour deal both venues have been bought by Tokyo Industries – a business that already owns Manchester clubs South, and The Factory.

The company said in a press release that staff will keep their jobs as part of the terms agreed between the company and the venues and that the booking policy of both clubs will remain intact.
