Venue focus

O2 Academy Leicester

Academy Music Group and the University of Leicester’s Students’ Union launched O2 Academy Leicester on campus in September 2010.

The Students’ Union, housed in the Percy Gee building, is the heart of the University of Leicester following a £15m development. The introduction of the 1,450 capacity live music and club venue was an integral feature of this programme, with first-class facilities to cater for the biggest live acts on the touring circuit.

With a vibrant local scene, there are two additional production-complete venues on site, O2 Academy2 Leicester (500 capacity) and the Scholar for 250 patrons, all of which operate independently, as well as simultaneously.
