Constellations all set to unveil New Look Space & 2017 Music Programme
Constellations, recent winners of MIB’s Independent Business Of The Year, are getting ready for the year ahead and with it they are bringing a new series of live music shows to Liverpool, promising an exciting programme of events to promote the Baltic Triangle as a live music destination in 2017 onwards.
The organisers want the venue to become a landing-place for emerging touring talent, as well as providing a destination for home-grown artists to perform. Regularly promoting local untapped and unsigned music, helping to keep Liverpool on the map as a city of culture.
“As an independent venue it is our duty to support the national pool of independent artists who in many cases struggle to find stages to showcase their talent” – Nicholas Baskerville, Marketing Manager.
Launching with a free event on December 1st, the venue will open it’s doors to a new-look space and introduce you to the talent of Sumochief and Poppy Ajudha, talented musicians from South London.
The updated event space makes it more suitable for gigs of all sizes, meaning smaller shows can take place throughout the week. During winter, the venue bar will be the place to get cosy with a brand new food & drinks menu and midweek live entertainment; come summer the garden will reopen permanently, hosting more live music and festival style events.
The new live music programming will fit snuggling alongside an already established programme of club events, in-house programming, conferences, weddings and garden parties.
INDEPENDENT VENUE WEEK
To jump into the live music market Constellations is now a key stakeholder and partner venue for Independent Venue Week (IVW), which started in 2015.
During IVW towards the end of January, the venue will host back to back live music events as well as a day and night conference exploring contemporary issues facing independent venues. There will be addresses, keynote speeches and panel discussions, with guests and participants attending from across the country.
AN EVOLVING SPACE
The venue is now known for its DIY approach: the owners have always wanted to provide a constantly evolving canvas adaptable to meet the needs of our city. Creating an alternative space for any style of event and providing an inspiring place for people to immerse themselves in culture.
The venue has been given a seasonal make over this winter. Constellations has got all grown up with a new food menu, a more functional event space, a cosier bar, a bespoke iron fire pit called “Apollo” and custom made video mapping to animate the space at night.
