Lomax Supporters Come Together Ahead of Court Hearing
Following the recent closure of Liverpool’s “best independent live music venue” there has been a spontaneous uprising of supporters who have formed the Save The Lomax Campaign.
Lomax was reopened in 2011 and is supported by a collective of people who believe the venue provides a much needed creative space for the local community; encouraging and supporting local bands and nurturing upcoming talent.
Save The Lomax Campaign spokesperson Anna Grace Henney says:
“There is no other venue like it in the city and it is of huge cultural importance that it remains open. There is a hearing on Wednesday 25th February to decide whether or not the venue will reopen and we are hopeful for a positive outcome”.
“The venue is well known in the city as being a safe environment with a wide demographic of regulars coming together for the love of music.”
The Lomax has a storied past with the likes of Oasis, Placebo, Radiohead and local favourites The Real People, Ian McNabb and Space frequenting the stage in the 90’s.
The campaign group hosted a peaceful gathering on Saturday, the Lomax Love-In, in support of the venue staying open. Hundreds of people gathered outside the venue for a group hug to display the peaceful ethos of The Lomax.
There will be a wide range of fund-raising activities going on over the next few weeks, put on by Save The Lomax Campaign, to ensure that the building is maintained and rent is paid on the property during any possible closure period. Plans include a charity single, a compilation album and a Save The Lomax concert. More details can be found on Facebook.com/SaveTheLomax
