Closure of Pirate Cardiff Location: What You Need to Know

Introduction: It is with regret that we announce the closure of Pirate Cardiff, effective March 17th, as the lease on our property has expired. This article aims to provide clear and practical information to our valued customers regarding the closure and the support measures we're implementing during this transition.

Closure Announcement: Regrettably, Pirate Cardiff will permanently close its doors due to the conclusion of its lease agreement. Despite its relatively modest size with only 11 studios, Pirate Cardiff has played an integral role in our community, fostering creativity and camaraderie among musicians and artists.

Transition Support: Understanding the potential impact of this closure on our customers, we are extending a gesture of support by offering three complimentary hours of studio time at our nearest facilities, Pirate Cheltenham and Pirate Bristol. To avail of this offer, customers can use the code 3HRBRISCHELT24 during checkout when booking sessions at either location before March 31st.

Looking Ahead: While the closure of Pirate Cardiff marks the end of its current chapter, we want to reassure our customers that our commitment to serving the Cardiff community remains unwavering. Although specific plans for our return to Cardiff are not yet solidified, we are optimistic about the possibility of re-establishing our presence in the future.

Conclusion: As we bid farewell to Pirate Cardiff, we extend our sincere gratitude to our customers for their loyalty and contributions over the years. We encourage affected individuals to explore the opportunities available at Pirate Cheltenham and Pirate Bristol as we navigate this transition period together.
