Manchester academy 1 refurbishment
Posted 14 February 2007 - 12:51 PM
I've heard some wild rumours about how long this is supposed to take & that all gigs meanwhile will be moved to the Apollo, but since that venue's so much bigger, that seems pretty unlikely.
Anyone know anything concrete about their plans?

I hope, if the Academy IS refurbing, they are considering putting a camber on the floor. It could do with a remodelling tbh, it's a long time since the Buzzcocks opened it some 17 years ago

Academy 1 will be closing its doors for a major refurbishment which is set to re-open mid-September this year. It is a £2.5 million renovation with the complete project finishing in January 2008.
There will be a full major refurbishment of bars, toilets, cloakrooms, first aid facilities and the front of house. This exciting new venue will also boast a larger stage and a much improved backstage area.There will be a purpose built disabled viewing area.
It will be a pioneering environmentally friendly building which will harvest rainwater for the toilets and cleaning use, and the building will be heated by means of deep borehole heat conversion and solar panels.
To enhance the Academy's presence on the Oxford Road there will be a new multi- coloured glazed tower entrance also internally providing a dynamic entrance foyer. We are looking forward to unveiling our fabulous venue in September.
