Permissions to access events

I'm trying to use the Ultimate Facebook to pull in Events from my clients facebook page. I am now an admin for this page but wasn't when I installed the plug in.

Although I am able to use the plugin to pull in a photo album, I don't seem to be able to access the events. When I put the events widget on the sidebar I get the following message

Your app doesn't have enough permissions to access your events
Grant needed permissions now

When I click on the "Grant needed permissions now" I get a popup which instantly closes itself. I think it is failing.

Can someone shed light on this?

    Hi Russell,

    That does seem like a particular situation the plugin may not be designed to handle at this time, as the permissions were already initially granted under an account setting that didn't utilize events.

    Any chance you could try using the credentials for another App in Facebook, perhaps creating a very basic App for this purpose, then switching back to the proper App credentials and granting permissions again?

    I think that would solve it for the moment.
