Rival scheme could threaten hopes for Bristol concert arena
BRISTOL’S hopes of building an large-scale concert arena could be harmed by plans for a rival venue in the region.
Support for the idea of building an arena with up to 10,000 seats has been rising in the city. All of the mayoral candidates who were asked about the issue by The Post in September, both party representatives and independents, said they were in favour.
But no definite plans have been drawn up and now Bristol faces being beaten to the punch by Swindon. The new owners of the Wiltshire town’s Oasis leisure centre has unveiled plans for a 7,500-seat indoor venue at the site, which would become the biggest of its kind in the south of England, outside London.
Morai Capital Investments took over the centre, which inspired the name of Manchester rock stars Oasis, earlier this year. Successful gigs by artists including singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran in its sports hall have persuaded the firm to increase the size of the planned permanent venue from 5,000 to 7,500 seats.
