Bristol venue Stag And Hounds is set to close its doors at the end of May. An imperative part of the Bristol music scene, the pub and venue has hosted all-dayers from the likes of Art is Hard as well as annual punk fest Dead Punk and a wealth of shows including local, national and international acts.

Officially announcing the closure today, the team wrote a quick message on their website, which you can see below.

Hello all,

As a few of you already know the stag and hounds will be handed back by ourselves at the end of May. But we’re announcing it officially today so everyone is in the know. Through a series of events and circumstances (some out of our control) we have looked at the books and it’s not viable for us to carry on to see the contract out. Our final weekend will be the 26th, 27th and 28th May 2017. Thanks for all the help and support over the last 6 year. We’ve had a right laugh and we’ll be back in other forms and guises before you know it.

Love always
The Stag And Hounds Team

The team have yet to officially state their future plans.
