At a time when many of London's live music venues are closing - an estimated 40 per cent of live music venues in London have shut down in the last decade, according to the BBC - it's exciting to see the opening of Omeara. Ben Lovett, of Mumford & Sons, has pulled out a corker of an opening concert, recruiting The Pretenders to launch the fabulous new venue. Playing to a sold-out crowd, Chrissie Hynde fronts the British-American collective who formed in Hereford in 1978 as they perform their iconic punk-rock originals, including I'll Stand by You.

About Omeara

Mumford and Sons band member Ben Lovett, co-founder of independent record label Communion, bucks the trend for closing down London's live music venues and opens one instead. Omeara in Borough's Flat Iron Square, a new development five minutes' walk from London Bridge, Southwark and Borough tube stations. More about Omeara
