Speaking about the upcoming tour, Church said: “After 6 ecstatic years of unparalleled debauchery, the Late Night Pop Dungeon is hanging up its feathers, sequins, P.V.C and velour.

“All good things must come to an end, and this ending will be the most euphorically lickable ending conceivable. Think Carrie meets Sunset Boulevard, soundtracked by the 2nd side of Abbey Road.

“Think a pool party with Prince and Kate Bush at the grill, Beyonce and Kurt Cobain on the bar… except it’s also Christmas, and both Santa and Kevin Mcallister are here to get down. Look, there’s Trent Reznor and Ozzy Osborne discussing Taylor Swift’s new record…”

Explaining the pop dungeon concept previously, Church said: “Down the dark, dark stairs, upon the bloody gallows of soft rock, through the oubliette of cheese, into the torture chamber of disco, you are welcomed to the Late Night Pop Dungeon.

“The Grand High Executionatrix, dungeon mistress Charlotte Church, and her ten-piece ultra-metronomic post-punk-disco-R’n’R’n’B backing band will give her MK Ultra treatment to the greatest tunes that time forgot, and some that will forever haunt our collective memory. Bring dancing shoes – the floor is on fire.”




Tramshed music venue in “severe jeopardy” due to development plans

In an official statement on Facebook, the venue said that they were urging people to help protect them by submitting an objection to the T2 plans with Cardiff Council here.

The statement reads: “DS Holdings which are also Tramshed’s landlords, have submitted plans to build T2, a four-storey building in Tramshed’s car park. This car park is used daily for Tramshed’s events, for artists to safely park up to three tour busses and trucks filled with equipment for events. Parking on the streets around Grangetown is already challenging for local residents. Despite multiple previous objections by the operators of Tramshed to previous similar plans, there have been no viable solutions offered to where vehicles could be safely accommodated nearby to allow the venue to continue to operate.

“We greatly respect the work DS Holdings have done across South Wales bringing new life into disused buildings and invigorating the surrounding area. We engaged with DS Holdings to provide the guarantees that we need from this development to ensure we can continue to trade successfully and not to create issues for us and the Grangetown community. Unfortunately have not been able to obtain them so have no option to object to the development and encourage others to do so to protect Tramshed.

Speaking of the plans, the statement added: “Once built the residents of the new building could jeopardise the existing venue with noise complaints which may cause restrictions on when artists could soundcheck and play in the venue.”


Since launching in 2015 Tramshed has housed some of the biggest artists including UB40, The Flaming Lips, Super Furry Animals’ Gruff Rhys, Charlotte Church, The Charlatans, Feeder and The Verve’s Richard Ashcroft.

This comes after a new survey found 42 per cent of Victorian venue operators fear having to permanently shut their doors without government aid, or if they are not able to operate at full capacity by the end of this year.
