Recent rumours have speculated that the Willow Disco will close this summer. A number of reasons have been put forward as to why the Chinese-restaurant-turned-club will shut its doors, including health and safety breaches.
Tommy Fong, the owner of Willow, said,
Yes, we definitely will close. The last night will be on the 26th of this month.
He went on to say that the insurance company Aviva is refusing to allow him to extend the lease on the property, and it is unlikely that the disco will be able to relocate. He said,
I very much doubt that I can find somewhere else in York.
Whether you love or hate Willow, the 26th of July will undoubtedly be a very busy (and possibly quite an emotional) night.
