Due For A Makeover

Few would deny that Liverpool's Royal Court Theatre is in need of modernisation. Despite its well-deserved reputation as the city's best live music venue for rock & pop (I could pen an entire post about the memorable & not-so-memorable gigs I've seen there), it's clearly showing its age. Possible design plans for the Court go on display at St George's Plateau today ( & ).
The venue has long been a flea-pit, albeit a lovable old one & when full, boasts an atmosphere which no other venue in the city can match (&, yes, that includes the soulless Echo arena).
Whatever changes are made to the theatre should compliment its design & heritage.
