In the 1970s the building found a new use as a dance hall and music venue, especially famous during the punk era.

In 2001 the building was converted into a Theatre and named 'The Venue' and had a number of successes over the years but became especially well known in 2002 when Boy George's 'Taboo' was produced in the Theatre.
