Button Factory future in doubt [updated]

Dublin’s Button Factory venue has gone into examinership. At the moment no live shows are affected but it’s still a worrying development, as the viability of the company as a going concern is called into question. More news as we have it.

Update: A statement from Button Factory.

The company ‘Temple Lane Management Ltd’ trading as the ‘ Button Factory’ is in an Examinership process.

Examinership does not affect any gigs, club nights or promoters. It is business as usual. Examinership simply means we have a period of 90 days to make arrangements to safeguard the viability of the business and make the business stronger for the years to come.

  • Button Factory is a fantastic venue. I have been there so many times. I love its design and live atmosphere is great. Also the location is fantastic because its in the Temple Bar and its very close to the city centre. I really hope we save it.
