Leith Depot is to remain open for another month after obtaining an extension on its lease.

The Leith Walk music venue and bar was due to close for good on Tuesday October 1st, but will now continue to trade till the end of the month.

The venue is the last business standing in the row of properties which Drum Property is attempting to turn into student flats.

The venue said: “On the back of a positive meeting with our landlord, we are pleased to say that we have agreed a lease extension until 31st of October.

“For the time being, we continue business as usual and we will update you all when we know more.

“Due to the circumstances we have nothing booked in our venue; please get in touch for any gig or event dates; [email protected].

“Thank you all for your continued support.”
