KeeleSU one of UK's 'best' venues for contemporary live music

Posted on 13 October 2014

KeeleSU features in the LiveUK Report 2014 as one of the UK's best venues for contemporary live music.

The LiveUK Report 2014 celebrates KeeleSU's constant strive for improvements and the enhancement of facilities, highlighting the recently installed new door entry system, which has enabled the marketing of shows to become more defined.

Bars and Entertainments Manager, David Melville, said: "we get their ID, name, age, what societies they are signed up to and what night they come out, so we can tell who and what they like, which enables us to be very targeted."

With an increasing student populous, ongoing plans to expand the ballroom from a 1,100 capacity to 1,700 would further enhance the experience had when attending events, and would show continued improvement to the £1.3m investment made in 2012 to redevelop the ground floor of the Union building into a spacious, alcohol-free social space.
