    They're currently running a competition to find a name for the venue.

    Posted in another thread but only just seen this

    We've already got a live music venue, but that's aimed more at the punk/rock/metal type

    there's space for tribute bands/more poppy stuff too so I guess it'll be good?

    Staffords first and only dedicated tribute act venue opening in 2021...
    405 person capacity , live pa , lights , 30ft video wall large raised stage and more all on site.
    Green room and accommodation on site

    big place- with accomodation on site ? 405 capacity, hmm shouldn't be really hard to guess but I can't think

    Sounds very ambitious eitherway, although the tribute acts when casa did some live music didn't go down badly and got people in, but this sounds a very expensive project

    Old library? Trying to think what would have 400 capacity. If its the old strip club then its probably doomed to failure due to location.

    Or the old cinema. I believe they were struggling, I may be wrong?

    Isn't that a listed building?

    A lot of work would have to be done you'd imagine to make it from a old cinema> to a big music venue

    They'd put something on Facebook that they hope to open again in January. Sam is trying really hard to make it a venue, but I guess screen 1 could be utilised although they'd have to level the floor.

    This all feels very familiar, I think, once upon a time, there were plans that never came to anything for the theatre bar to be turned into something like this.

    (Ha, I was right - http://www.staffordforum.com/xf/index.php?threads/new-bar-club-opening-the-live-lounge.4226/)

    I seem to remember Stafford Cinema were thinking of having live music, or seeing if it might be possible.

    The old M&S would be a really good place to have it actually, especially as that end of town is becoming more of a social area.

    I know it doesn't say when in 2021 it might open but both of those feel they would need a lot of work to get them to the point where they were looking at bookings, not to mention licensing etc.

    If this is real my guess would be something fairly easy to convert and get up and running.

    I did wonder if it would be part of Couture? Another re jig of the basement area that's currently poptastic. It's the 'accommodation on site' that made me think about it.

    Poptastic is the only room that gets people in I believe, unless there's events in the main Rooom, all the cool kids go casa nowadays

    The Couture building does have about ten rooms at the side of the building now that they let out I believe?

    Possibly the big room then - but that would be my top suggestion...
