|Music venue founder Bryn Lewis passes away|
|Monday, 13 February 2017 09:25|
The Brook has announced that the music venue’s founder and creator, Bryn Lewis, who was a Bitterne Parker, has sadly died.
Bryn was also described by one person on Twitter as “a great Bitterne Parker”.
The Brook said on its website:
“It is with great sadness that we have to announce that Bryn Lewis, founder and creator of The Brook, died yesterday following a short illness.
“As an established licensee in Southampton and following on from managing several successful pubs in the city, Bryn acquired The Brook in 1995 and transformed the original pub into the two tier music venue we know and love. He had a simple aim: to create a venue where people could have fun and enjoy live entertainment. Bryn conceived and generated a unique ethos and culture that will continue to live on and from which many, many people have, and will continue to, derive a lot of pleasure.”
Our thoughts are with Bryn’s family and friends.
