Dublin music venue Jam Park has announced it’s closure just one week before it was due to re-open.
The venue was supposed to host Ireland’s first nightclub event since the pandemic as part of government trials.
A message on its website reads: “Unfortunately we’ve got some bad news: we are closing our site at Airside in Swords for good.
“We’ve tried our best to come to an agreement regarding our lease since the Covid pandemic forced us to close, but no dice.
“So we are now left with no choice but to close in Airside and look for somewhere else.
“To be told this news one week before we reopen is a bitter pill to swallow, maybe if we’d have been told 6-12 months ago it would have been easier to accept.
“But the game is the game. Now we need to find somewhere else to play.”
Unfortunately we’ve got some bad news: we are closing our site in Swords for good. Full statement is on our site.
We’ll be moving house in June, if you have any storage suggestions or other spaces we could move Jam Park to, please get in touch!
