A rather gorgeous, and shamefully neglected cornerstone of the city’s entertainment circuit opens its doors again next month. The 1200 capacity space, right at the heart of the warren of shops and boutiques at Grand Central on Renshaw Street, is the site of a former Methodist Church and a grade two listed building.
The Dome will offer a mixed bag of live performance from touring bands, theatre, stand-up comedy and variety nights. It used to be the venue for the Rawhide comedy nights, and SevenStreets remembers a particularly brilliant Echo and the Bunnymen gig a few killing moons ago. It is, in short, a space not short of atmosphere. And we’re not just talking the Emo mist that hovers outside its portals.
