Nation, the home of historic dance party Cream, has announced that it will close at the end of 2015, to make way for an exciting and brand new subterranean music venue on the same hallowed ground as the iconic venue.
A Cream spokesperson said: “The Elliot Group have taken on board the importance of retaining the cultural and musical hub that Wolstenholme Square offers and our ideas and ethos for the new venue. Ourselves and the thousands of people who have passed through Nation’s doors hold a deep attachment to the venue and what it stands for and the plans present us with an incredible opportunity to create an exciting new music venue for the city.”
With the closure of Nation imminent, Cream will soon be announcing a series of shows to coincide with their 23rd birthday celebrations, with the venue's final closing party to take place on Boxing Day evening.
