Control has gone into liquidation after owing £1.139million


Leeds nightclub Control has gone into liquidation, according to a report signed by its owner. 

The 3,000 capacity venue on Kirkstall Road has seen club nights come and go as it failed to attract Leeds’ clubbers who prefer the city-centre or the delights of Fruity at the Union.

Creditors include HM Revenue and Customs who are claiming £200,000, claim Insider Media. However their total debt is £1.139million.

The owner of Control is Jim Albentosa. He also owns popular student event company Taking Liberties which hosts Sticky Feet, Mixtape Project and Donuts and also owns The Warehouse in the city-centre.

The venue’s website and Facebook page have now been deleted. It’s unclear whether this will mean the venue will remain closed or whether other club nights will be affected.

The Tab has contacted Taking Liberties for comment.
