Laura Marling barred from own gig for being too young

Singer busks on street after being asked to leave

Laura Marling was not allowed into her own gig last night (October 1) because she was too young.

The singer, who was due to play the Soho Revenue Bar in London, was asked to leave the venue because she is 17 and no one under 18 is allowed on the premises.

Instead, Marling busked outside the venue before finding another place to play – The Exchange in Gerrard Street – later on in the night.

However, the support bands Noah And The Whale and King Charles – all over 18 – played Soho Revenue Bar.
