The future is Birkenhead, it seems...

Merseyside is set to welcome a new venue, with Future Yard set to open on September 19th.

The new 350 capacity space is situated three minutes away from Liverpool city centre, and will open this Autumn.

It's embedded in the creative community that exists in Birkenhead, and follows the highly successful festival.

The venue will introduce a series of socially distanced shows, starting with She Drew The Gun on September 19th.

A carbon neutral venue, Future Yard intends to host a full capacity programme from January 2021, featuring OMD, Black Country New Road, Self Esteem, and more.

Future Yard founder Craig Pennington comments:

"We believe that Future Yard is needed now, more than ever before. True, it is a challenging time, but we believe the experience of lockdown has shown how powerful a community can be and we want to provide a space for our local community to come together."

"We’ve also seen an explosion in live streaming and digital performance, which has been hugely welcome and is here to stay, but this does not replace live music. People who love live music have acutely realised how important it is to them, how much of a role it plays in their lives. We’re committed to creating a new venue to champion and support new music in Birkenhead."

Future Yard opens on September 19th.
