The recession took another high street victim last week when HMV called in the administrators on Monday. In a statement issued by HMV, the organisation emphasised that the Institute on Digbeth High Street will not be affected:
We would like to reassure all of our customers that this venue was acquired by MAMA and Company in December 2012 and is no longer a part of the HMV Group. We are in the process of removing the “HMV” name from the venue and from all of our marketing materials.
In the meantime please be assured that the recent announcements in relation to HMV do not affect this venue or any events taking place here. If you have bought a ticket from HMV Tickets and haven’t received it please contact us at email@example.com
So it looks as though the venue may return to its original Digbeth Institute name soon… Whatever happens, we’ll be sure to keep you updated!
