Empire to stay closed till March

The Shepherds Bush Empire will remain closed until at least March as the listed building’s roof is repaired.

The venue closed late in 2015 after major structural issues were identified during a routine check.

A spokeswoman from the Empire said: “Following the closure of O2 Shepherds Bush Empire on 4 December and further inspections, structural engineers have advised that works to the roof structure will extend into March.

“The repairs require propping the roof from inside the main auditorium and we are working with independent experts and advisors to complete this maintenance as quickly as possible”.
