CROWDS of music fans turned out to support an Isle of Wight venue at the weekend after fears were raised about its future.
Ryde’s Wight Rock Bar faces a licence review next month after neighbours of the Lind Street venue complained about noise.
On Saturday, music fans showed their support at a "Save the Rock" gig where they signed a petition prepared by Platform One students Gareth Ashworth and Emma Johnson.
Wight Rock licensee Shaun Newnham, who has said he is confident any noise problems could be resolved, said: "It really was a brilliant show of support — the sort of turnout we need to all our music events in these difficult times."
The licence review is due to take place on February 21.
