It was refurbished in 2009 to give it increased capacity, improved dressing rooms and digital recording gear, enabling bands to make on-the-spot recordings.

The nearest rail station is Highbury & Islington, with a Tube connection (Victoria line) as well as Overground and National Rail services. Holloway Road is served by bus routes 43, 271, 393 and N41.
