I Livingston Forum may well have bitten the dust as an all-night venue. thanks to several new laws brought into effect by recent licensing changes. Alcohol is no longer going to be available in the VIP lounge. which means that bands which have an alcohol clause in their contracts (almost all of them) will more than likely refuse to play. Also a new law states that only
one security company will
be allowed to work on a
3 night. which means that
bands with their own ! security will have to carefully consider making an appearance.
