Feeling Bluu

As of 18th June, ManillaRoad's comedy night will no longer be at Bluu. The brewery have sold the premises and with new owners coming in & closing for refurbishment, its left us looking for a new home.

We're confident of securing a new venue in the coming week, all being well, our next night on 5th July will be going on as planned, just with the christening of a new room.

Many thanks for supporting us
