Your safety

Tuesday 9th November 2021

On Sunday 7th November the Scala management team were made aware of a
serious incident that took place at the Face Down club night featuring Wargasm
who were performing live. We immediately began a full scale investigation into the
actions of those implicated. The two security personnel involved were deployed
by Saber Security Ltd to work at the club night. Having completed an extensive
investigation, a detailed study of CCTV and met with the directors of the
security company, the two rogue individuals who carried out the offence were
dismissed from working at Scala with immediate effect. Our immediate and main
concern, after passing on our sincerest apologies to those directly affected by
this incident, was to ensure that the artist, their management, artists agent
and the promoters of Face Down were fully briefed on proceedings taking place
at our end and that they were reassured that Scala backed and actively
encouraged them to report the incident to the police and that we would assist
them wholeheartedly. We now have the statements and CCTV footage in order to
help assist with any further investigation. Unfortunately this detailed inquiry
has taken time and we were not able to respond as quickly as social media would
have liked.

Scala is an independent venue which has been proud to host club nights
and concerts of all genres since 1999 and the actions of these two individuals
has far reaching consequences for all of us. 
Under no circumstance has or would Scala condone any such behaviour, we
have always prided ourselves on the diversity of nightlife, concerts, clubs and
customers that have come through our doors.

Scala Management.
