The Ironworks will remain "very much open for business as usual until we are advised otherwise" despite its future hanging by a thread.

Earlier today Highland Councillors chose to defer a decision that would see the venue torn down to build a £30 million hotel.

However, the south planning meeting did reveal there remains significant opposition to the plan for a Courtyard by Marriott hotel.

Despite, the boost to the economy with investment and employment many still feel the loss of main music venue in Inverness would be regrettable – many others felt the hotel would simply be out of place.

So from the perspective of music fans who wish to retain the Ironworks all is not yet lost.

Speaking afterwards Ironworks director Caroline Campbell moved to assure fans that there will be more gigs in the near future.

She said: “We remain very much open for business as usual until we are advised otherwise and have some fantastic programming in the coming months, so look forward to seeing audiences continue to visit us on Academy Street.

“We will continue to promote and deliver our upcoming events with tickets remaining valid and fully protected, so please continue to book at www.ironworksvenue.com.

"We’d like to sincerely thank our customers, staff, performers, suppliers and industry partners for all their support at this time and for helping us create something we should all be incredibly proud of.”
