A TREE came crashing down on a popular music venue.

Staff at the Hive in Winsford were left wondering if they would have to cancel upcoming shows after a large tree fell down in the middle of the night.

But it appears that will not be the case, although the venue hasn’t survived completely unscathed.

“There has unfortunately been damage done to the lychgate, fence and wall area but all has been made structurally safe,” said a spokesperson for The Hive.

“Just another cost when you least need it but it could have been so much worse.

“Thankfully it fell when no one was in the venue or passing by on the pathway. For that we are thankful.

"We opened for the disability disco last night and will be open for the weekend events, including Judge Jules on Friday."

The tree fell some time in the early hours of Wednesday morning (August 2), with branches blocking Market Place.

Cheshire West and Chester Council was alerted and the branches were removed some time later that day.

The Hive is set to host DJ Judge Jules tonight, who will be known by many for his residencies on Kiss FM and BBC Radio 1.

The Judge is considered a pioneer of the club scene and has played at some of the world’s most iconic venues and festivals, including Ministry of Sound and Creamfields.
