Culture lovers to enjoy later nights at Quay Arts

Arts lovers holidaying on the Isle of Wight will now be able to get their arts fix late into the night after local councillors agreed to extend the opening hours of one of the island's best-loved venues.
 
From the New Year, Quay Arts will be allowed to host performances past midnight, with film, music and dance shows all permitted to go on until 12.30am, the County Press reports.
 
This will further boost the Newport venue's reputation as the cultural hotspot of the island and will allow its owners to hold even more events while giving patrons the chance to enjoy a drink before or after a performance.
 
Quay Arts, which boasts a cafe, bar and in-house pottery as well as a main performance area, hosts a huge variety of events and is a popular stopping-off point for touring comedians and bands.
 
In the first few weeks of 2014 alone, it will host stars such as Robin Ince and Lucy Porter, as well as local folk musicians and even a slam poetry night.
