PLANS to transform an Elgin musical venue into a dental surgery seem to have been ditched.

An application to convert the Two Red Shoes Ballroom, on South College Street, into a dentists and two flats was submitted to the local authority on March 26 this year.

However, the plans, issued on behalf of applicants G K Dental, were withdrawn four days later on March 30.

The Two Red Shoes, which hosted the Beatles in 1963 and also attracted The Who, Pink Floyd and The Kinks, was closed as a ballroom in the 80s.

It subsequently housed a range of businesses – from a cafe to squash courts – before being re-opened as The Red Shoes Theatre in 2006.

Re-branded as The Venue in October 2010, it closed after just a few weeks and has remained shut up since.
