London’s 100 Club given special status

A special status has been given to one of London’s oldest music venues.

Due to financial pressures, the 100 Club was at risk of closure.

The venue, which has seen the The Rolling Stones, Oasis and The Sex Pistols perform there, will now benefit from 100% business rates relief.

Owner Jeff Horton said the club will continue to support hundreds of artists that take to its stage every year, BBC reports.

The club, which began life as a restaurant in the 1940s, has played host to some of the world’s most famous artist throughout the years.
