Brighton LGBTQ+ venue Le Village, based in the heart of the gay village, has closed its doors.

Commenting on the news, owner Lee Cockshott said: “Well, this is one of the hardest statements I have had to make, but the time has come to close Le Village. Both me and Simon Ebers have had to make this very hard decision for a number of reasons. Some have been played out in a very spectacular way in the media, which I’m sure a lot of you have seen in recent years: losing hours off our licence at weekends and constant complaints have been the final nail in the Le Village story.

“We would like to thank everyone that has supported us over the years.”
