One of the city’s most historic and stunning venues, it’s the number one destination for the biggest acts in music, clubbing and comedy in the Grade II listed building.
Following a £4.5 million refurbishment, the venue opened with an outstanding show by the most successful band from the City, Kaiser Chiefs on Wednesday 8th October 2008. Since opening, the venue has been an instant hit with artists and promoters and customers, all delighted the venue retains as many original features and grandeur of its former years by converting back to the theatre format, but adding up to the minute and facilities and production values.
Designed to the highest technical specification, the auditorium is theatre style and has a capacity of 2,300 with original brick features and exposed beams and perfectly combines its magnificent heritage with a modern development.
The venue also has a 400 capacity second room downstairs called ‘Underground’, an intimate club space, top of the range PA and lighting specification to host the perfect club events and pre and post bar trade.
