Capacity @ Bunkers is listed as 270 I'll drop round this week and see what the score is As said location is bang-on and its also close to Jurys Inn and Premier Inn both doing doubles around £60 at the mo Wink

If bunkers hill is to small there's also The Central more set up for bands & less than 5 min from the Arena ? http://www.centralmusicvenue.co.uk/ might be worth a look , surly they would jump @ the chance to give us a free venue to take some dosh on a Friday afternoon.

cheers for your help,please any more suggestions for a venue , i am in talks with Bunkers and Central Music Venue at the moment,i think the venue will have to hold 300 , not charge the earth (free would be good)
I am also in talks with a DJ that myself and ARCH have used before reggae/ska/2-tone/northern soul all on vinyl Very Happy
so fingers crossed we will have something concrete to make this the best pre gig ever!!!!!!!!!!!

I have just got in from work and it looks like there are a few sugestions for the venue.

I dont know the area that well but I am sure that 3 minute hero will welcome any sugestions on a suitable venue in the right area that is not too far from the Arena that aint gonna cost, a lot to consider.

Most places were I live would welcome such an event free of charge as it would generate loads of profit at the bar.

I know its early days and there is bags of time left but I look forward to hearing where the venue is when it has been choseen.We can then look at getting a guest list sorted.

I think that you have it all in hand and I am happy with whatever you can get the best deal from mate, I'm ok with a short walk to and from the venue but others may not be as happy, so maybe a bit closer to the venue if there is anywhere.

Well done you lot,glad your getting it sorted, i dont think i could repeat last years so i will leave it on a high.

Good luck to all you going i am sure it will be a top day/night.

I havent ordered any tickets for Nottts next year, but maybe closer to the time i may be tempted.

Looks like Wolves and Cov for me.

Enjoy yourself ..........
