Meanwhile, you can help this site get started. The database of venues needs to be built up, to be a complete list of UK venues. So, if you'd like to help us by submitting details of any venues, then you can do that here.

Hi Neil,

You've been going a while now, and I wonder if you feel you need all the regional venue boards. I think they might make the board look a bit too cumbersome, and perhaps daunting to new users, and i wonder if it might seem better if they were simply in a merged 'venues' thread?

What does everyone else think?

yeah, it's something that I've considered doing.

Perhaps the way to do it would be to put them as subforums of a main "venues" forums (in the same way that Glasto has sub forums on the festivals boards)? What do peeps think?

Also, I guess if I were to do that, it might be an idea to further split out the bands forums, so there's few letters used for each forum? What do peeps think?

hi neil

how about a sticky for accomodation suggestions.

seen as public transport rubbish for gigs nowadays a lot of people forced to shell out for a nights accomodation :)

so would be helpful if people could list where they stayed after a gig

hotel, b+b etc.

a couple of reccomendations from me are

the thistle hotel in birmingham ,about a 15 min walk to the acadamy.

the grantly hotel shepherd bush london ,right opposite the empire ,also loads of takeaways handy for ya after gig munchies :(

both fairly priced imho ,worked out at 35 quid each for a twin room if my memorys correct.

It'd be much easier if eGigs listed which actual venue bands play at in Manchester, rather than the whole "Academy 1, 2, 3 & 4 (Manchester University), Manchester".

The problem with that is that the tour information I get very often doesn't split it down into the specific one
