venue info

In 2010, AMG partnered with leading Students' Union venue 'The Old Fire Station' to bring a broad live music programme to the people of Bournemouth and the students at Bournemouth University. Amongst the UK's Students’ Union venues, The Old Fire Station stands out above all others, thanks to its rare high street location and outstanding Grade II listed frontage. The venue is bursting with character and history and its main auditorium has a capacity of 550 for standing live show and 300 for seated cabaret style events. Since it opened in 1995 it has staged live artist performances from the likes of Chase & Status, Bloc Party and Graham Norton, not forgetting the hundreds of emerging live bands in between.
