When will Revolution come to Stratford?

STRATFORD revellers will have to wait even longer for the town’s new Revolution bar to open following a delay in a court hearing over its operating licence.

The bar chain was granted a licence to open at Bards Walk between 10am-1.30am Thursday to Saturday and 10am to midnight between Sunday and Wednesday, by Stratford District Council in August.

However Revolution had originally applied for a licence to open until 2.30am Thursday to Saturday and the company is currently appealing the council’s decision.

A first hearing on the issue was due to take place last week, but has now been postponed until the New Year.

A spokesperson for property management company Square Metre, which manages the Bards Walk development, said there may be no further progress until February.

      I suppose youd be willing to chip in for the taxi back then right? We used to have two venues we could go to (Maison and chicago rock) now we have none. Maybe fuck off to a village or Henley in Arden if you want somewhere dead at night. Stratfords population is massive and growing, the fact we dont have a late night venue despite this is insane!

        Why don’t we need this? Nobody is forcing you to go out clubbing at night, and Stratford is located in the Midlands nearby smaller towns such as Alcester, therefore it attracts a wider population. People like you should get a life and realise that you aren’t the only people who live in this town.

          Dan how about **YOU** get a life!! not every one goes to bed at 8:30PM with a mug of hot co-co, or goes to Bingo / Dominoes

          What an insane argument, im not the one forcing anything on anyone here you are. The market for these places has only grown whilst the number has shrunk due to bitter old people. I have a life and i would like to be able to live it without NIMBYs shutting down places i want to go to. You need to get a life and stop trying to dictate what others should do with theres just because you live in the same postcode.

    ref this paragraph ‘The bar chain was granted a licence to open at Bards Walk between
    10am-1.30am Thursday to Saturday and 10am to midnight between Sunday and
    Wednesday, by Stratford District Council in August.

    Are we sure that those hours are correct!!!
