London venue KOKO is going to close til 2020 for a £40million redevelopment

London venue KOKO has announced a major new redevelopment.

The Camden venue - which was unexpectedly forced to close last year while structural work was carried out - will close from March 2019 until spring 2020 while it undergoes “a major £40million state-of-the-art transformation”.

A press release reads: “The redevelopment of the venue includes the acquisition of two adjacent buildings and a complete renovation of the rooftop area, adding more than 20,000sqft of new spaces, whilst retaining the main venue’s intimate 1,500 person capacity. The transformation will position KOKO as London's newest and most innovative multi-media venue, creating a social destination where high-quality music, food, entertainment, and hospitality come together in ways never seen before.”

KOKO will hold a closing party with "a special live act" on 5th March, to be announced on Monday.
