Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Go Back To Dewsbury…

The news many of us in West Yorkshire have been waiting for has finally been revealed.

In a statement on his Facebook page, Evile bassist Joel Graham said, “I am finally very pleased to announce that I will be taking over as the new manager when [The Old Turk] reopens.”

The current plan, which is on target at the moment, is to open the doors on Friday 31st October.  Appropriately enough, Halloween night.  Initially, Joel plans to open the pub on Friday and Saturday nights as well as hosting live music and special and private events on request.

Currently, the pub is being remodelled and redecorated.  This includes the building of a stage.

There will be more progress updates leading up to opening night, as well as the starting of a Facebook page which will also be used to keep friends up to date with forthcoming events “and other good stuff”, to quote Joel.  Having spoken to him about this at Bloodstock, other plans include possibly hosting a West Yorkshire edition of Metal 2 The Masses as well as a spot of DJing from my good self in a live version of The Wyrd Ways Rock Show.
