Another London venue closes

One of London's oldest live entertainment venues will close its doors for good following an unsuccessful campaign to secure its future. The Coronet at Elephant and Castle first opened as a theatre in 1879, where it is said Charlie Chaplin performed, but it has now been announced the venue would shut on January 5, 2017. Throughout its 136-year-old history, the venue has entertained Londoners as the Elephant and Castle Theatre, an ABC Cinema, the Coronet Film Centre and most recently as The Coronet. Artists who have played there include Tom Jones, Oasis, Justin Timberlake and Alicia Keys.
