On 15th June, The Bough Hotel Pub management explicitly insisted that they were more than happy to serve and host racists. A regional EDL ‘meet and greet’ happened there that day. The manager of The Borough Hotel, Nicola, is an EDL supporter. This establishment is used and managed by fascists, it must be avoided at all costs.
We can confirm that a good number of bands who regularly play gigs at The Borough have already said they will not be returning.
Please spread the word. Say no to racist scum.

The manager has tried to delete her links to the EDL, but fortunately, we took screenshots a long time ago.
It seems The Borough Hotel have deleted their Facebook. Locals from Southend have launched the Boycott The Borough Hotel campaign – give it a like!
The Goldmaster Allstars, a band from Southend who regulary play gigs at The Borough have issued this statement:
“Due to the recent developments at the Borough Hotel concerning the venue itself allowing the EDL to hold one of their meetings there. The Goldmaster allstars feel that they can no longer be associated with the venue.
The fourth coming event on the 6th July will be moved to another venue , so don’t worry the summer skank will still be on. Watch this space for further updates. Sorry for any inconvenience people.“
Full respect to them! Other bands have also said they won’t be returning.
