A pub and nightclub that unexpectedly closed will be reopening soon after being taken over by new owners. 

The Rolleston Arms and Level 3 music venue were boarded up in January this year leaving the Commercial Road property and one of the town's only music venues out of use. 

But in April, Swindon couple Craig Waters and Charlotte Thornton, who have previously worked in the events industry confirmed they will run the pub and nightclub alongside Craig's mum Carol Waters, who has managed several pubs in and around Swindon in the past.

And now the Rolleston Arms will reopen on June 7 at 11am, with its own grand opening event with live music starting from 9pm. 

This event will be hosted by Moshville Radio and featuring music from Stone Soup and local boys Men in Vests

The Levels Nightclub, which has formerly been known as Level 3, The Underground and The Furnace, will reopen the day after with its own grand opening event. 

This will be Flatout Drum and Base 001 featuring TC and will run from 9pm until 4am.

Speaking to the Adver at the time their takeover was confirmed, Charlotte revealed what their plans for the two venues was. 

"We put in an application because we saw they were looking for new management in January, and they really liked our fresh ideas and plans to revive the place. There are a lot of changes we want to make," said Charlotte.

"We're completely redoing the pub itself and the club will be different looks-wise, as well as being renamed from Level 3 to just 'Levels'.

"It will visually be different but as far of the feel of the place we still want to keep that and still have it as a place for live alternative music."

The Depravation Music Festival will also be taking place in August. 

The buildings were formerly run by former Wetherspoons manager Daniel Harrison who took over The Rolleston Arms and Level 3 in February 2023 after it was placed up for sale in August 2022 by previous owner Violet McLaren. 

Daniel told the Adver at the time that he jumped at the chance to take over the place, having visited the music venue when it was known as The Furnace, moving his partner and five children in. 

But despite renaming the music side the Underground and revealing grand plans to eventually do up the front of the pub, it was closed within a year.

The Facebook page for The Underground stopped being active in December last year, and the last activity on The Rolleston Arms page came in November.
