15th October 2013
Sorry - we had to remove the picture because the person who took it called us and said he does not want it to be published. Maybe it was the person who took it who rang us or maybe it wasn't? Maybe there is more to this story than is immediately obvious?...
This could have been absolutely disastrous and it's so lucky that nobody was seriously hurt, or worst.

The venue is currently undergoing emergency maintenance and repairs and the gig was forced to move to the Slaughtered Lamb at short notice.
Symptomatic, responsible for booking shows at the Water Rats say that much of the damage was merely aesthetic with the structure of the building remaining entirely unaffected.
Engineers are repairing the area, with the venue set to re-open on Friday (October 18th).
