30-something ex-ravers are getting very excited over on Facebook over the news that the Que Club is re-opening with the first event being the next Drop Beats Not Bombs on September 14th. Here’s the reminiscences Facebook group but this other one links to centralhallbirmingham.co.uk, though it’s just a holding page right now, and states:
ITS BACK – under new ownership and Management – expect to see the biggest names in the business back at the newly refurbished Que Club in Central Hall.
So I guess plans to convert it into flats / offices fell through. It’ll be interesting to know who’s now running it and what they have planned. Is it just a club venue or will there be gigs and concerts too? A competitor to the Academy would be a good thing I feel, especially give they’ll be closing (and hopefully relocating) in a few years.
Compared to the (justified) pomp and fanfare of the Town Hall refurb this seems to be having a very quiet launch. Any light that can be shed would be welcome.
