Rumours emerged online in the summer that The Plug in Matilda Street was to be sold off and the site would reopen as a '˜golfing supplies company'. 

But this was denied by the venue owners MJR Group and the firm announced this week that the venue is set for a bright future having being taken over by a new management team. 

Nicole Jewitt, Plug's new general manager, said: 'It's such an exciting time to join as the new general manager here at Plug and to be a part of its rebirth!
