The Libertines will perform an exclusive matinee gig at The Oval Bandstand and Lawns in Cliftonville this week.
The band, which also owns the Albion Rooms hotel and Wasteland bar in Eastern Esplanade, will put on the show on Wednesday (August 17) at 4pm.
It will be followed by an after-party at The Albion Rooms.
The Libertines hotel and recording studio The Albion Rooms was bought by band members in 2017 and opened in two phases across 2019 and 2020.
Co-frontman Carl Barat also teamed up with chef and restaurateur, Gizzi Erskine; partner and Cruel Hearts Club’s’ front woman Edie Langley, and music industry insider Ronnie Traynor to open LOVE café in Margate last year. The Marine Gardens site will also house Justine’s music venue downstairs.
The Oval Bandstand and Lawns is managed by community organisation GRASS Cliftonville CIC.
The group, which is earmarked to receive a total of £500,000 from the £22million fund, plans to remove the old toilet block at the site and replace it with a pavilion with café, community room/s and public toilets.
Tickets for the gig are £22.60. The event is for those aged 18 and over.
After party tickets are £11.30.
