BRILLIANT NEWS!
Heard this yesterday and was exstatic! BEAUTIFUL building, and on a different note, it is in the, currently, deprived town of Boscombe (Pokesdown for those of you who know the trains) and this is just what it needs to give this town an economic boost!

Also, my best friend lives a 5 minute walk from it, so i'll be there every night!

Mainly concerts but they really want to pull in a few touring productions too.
I was shown this building back in 1984 when it had been neglected and forgotten. We walked thru it with hard hats it was so bad.
It was stunning then and the present owners have made it look incredible.

Totes excited for this. Just what Boscombe (aka the biggest hole in the world) needs.

Any idea what timeframe is on the project?

Not to turn this into a pop music board, but I have seen the first group ATM announced to perform there after the re-name will be the band "Florence + the Machine" in September!

If they are getting bands like these, this is gonna be a big, and no doubt soon, famous music venue!
