Old Fire Station Bournemouth Tickets - Old Fire Station Bournemouth Events
Located on Holdenhurst Road, the Old Fire Station Bournemouth is a nightspot that is used for live music, comedy events and club nights. It is one of Bournemouthâ€™s favourite venues and much-loved among the cityâ€™s large student population, in part due to the fact that it is run by the local student union. The venue is capable of accommodating 1,200 attendees at capacity, but some events are organised on a much smaller scale, with perhaps only 200 being in attendance.
A wide variety of musical tastes is catered for at the Old Fire Station; something that reflects the cultural diversity of the city. The club stages events for dance fans, devotees of electronica, and nights suited to lovers of indie rock music. It is also used for drum â€˜nâ€™ bass nights, house club nights and alt rock events, among others.
Old Fire Station Bournemouth info
Although it was run as an entertainment venue before, the Old Fire Station in Bournemouth was converted to a dedicated nightclub and music performance centre for Bournemouth Universityâ€™s Student Union in 1995. Despite it being a student venue, many of its events are open to the public at large and not restricted to members of the union only. A good number of the ticketed events are pop and rock gigs. In the past, some notable performers have taken to the stage at the Old Fire Station, among them Ed Sheeran, Groove Armada, Bloc Party and Dizzee Rascal. Other artists to have put on shows at the venue include David Guetta and Pendulum.
Regular club nights tend to be staged during the week at the Old Fire Station and most of the live performances are weekend events, although there is no hard-and-fast rule. The venue occupies a Grade II listed building, which gives it an atmosphere that many purpose-built live music spots in southern England cannot match. It is located a short distance from the cityâ€™s main railway station.
As well as its frequent gigs and club nights, the Old Fire Station Bournemouth is home to a regular comedy night. Comedy Nation is a monthly stand-up evening, which sees a number of comedic acts taking to the stage. It is advisable to book for this popular event â€“ which is the longest running one of its kind in Bournemouth â€“ especially if you want to obtain a table for your party. The venue has three different rooms of various sizes, which are available for private hire events, such as birthday celebrations.
