WORTHING IS about to get a new, purpose-built venue to host concerts, comedy and club nights.
Located in the grounds of Soundhouse Studios, The Factory Live (cap. 350) is a partnership between the studios and local event organiser Atom Promotions, which has staged concerts with acts such as 10cc, Grandmaster Flash, The Charlatans in the area.
The venue launches at the end of September with a performance from The Allergies and tickets priced at £12.50. Other shows feature The South (at £22.50), Toyah Wilcox (£20) and Beardyman (£16).
“We will deliver high quality events for both new and emerging talent alongside established and heritage acts, and expect to do about 100 live music events a year,” says Atom Promotions Thom Milner-Smith.
“This partnership will allow us to grow the range of seminal events that have been staged in my hometown for the past 10 years.”
The Factory Live, which is situated on an industrial state, will also boasts a 200-capacity studio performance space.
Atom was formed in 2009 and produces events across the south east and in London.
