Our mission is to provide the people of Newport with a vibrant arts space that is open to all. We will seek to delight and inspire our diverse community by promoting amazing music and art in all its forms. We will be a creative hub operating at the heart of our city and will work tirelessly to connect existing and new audiences with outstanding live music, art and cinema.



The Situation...

Sadly, after 24 amazing music-fuelled years, Le Pub is up for sale!

Due to circumstances beyond the control of the long running management team behind Newport’s iconic venue, we have to move.

However, behind every disappointment, there is a shining opportunity - and whilst we’re sad to leave our current home - we are very excited about the next stage.

Ater a public consultation, we listened when you said you wanted a bigger, more central space with a wider variety of facilities and access for all.

Our aim is simple – take everything you know and love about Le Pub and create a new larger, more inclusive arts space. You will still be able to watch great music and live performances from Newport and across the world as well as socialise, rehearse, perform and collaborate.


The next stage...

Le Public Space will be a community owned venue, in the heart of the city, made possible by a tailor-made community share scheme with the current management team from Le Pub at the helm (with a little help from professionals and some experienced passionate regulars).


You can expect:

• Live music and comedy from across the world

• Performance and rehearsal space for local artists

• Community gallery space

• Film screenings

• Widely stocked bar and diverse alternative jukebox

• Same brilliant staff

• A new place in the heart of the city for EVERYONE to enjoy

More information, including the legalities of the share offer will be published soon but get in touch to find out more.
