Lancashire Police triggered a review into how 53 Degrees operated

“Unsustainable” is how the venue was described

With the news on Friday evening that 53 Degrees would be closing its doors to the public there’s been quite a reaction.


It’s a big silver building that holds many special memories for the students and public of Preston alike (the author of this included).

The Students’ Union has announced after Christmas it will not continue in its current format, no more live shows and a limited programme of student events.
