Hi all, i'm a new user to the site but would like to introduce myself and ask a few questions.
I came across the site doing some research about all of the underground tunnels that have cropped up on the Wirral. I know a lot of you like to go exploring and know of many landmarks and derelict buildings etc.
My name is Jack Brown and I currently run an underground dance music event as part of a team @ Revolver (aka Hotel California) in Birkenhead. We're all DJs who run the night to have the chance to showcase our talents to a local crowd. In the past year we've seen the night grow from strength to strength and we currently get 250+ people in attendance each event and the atmosphere is quite incredible. Surprisingly for Birkenhead, we've managed to filter out all of the morons in the area and attract a crowd who attend soley for the music and to enjoy themselves. We've built up a bit of a rapport and our reputation as a brand and as DJs/Artists has started to build.
The venue we currently use - "Revovler" has a lot of character which suits the image of our event. During the summer there is an outdoor terrace which we use which is quite stunning when the weather is nice.
Our problem now, with winter approaching, is finding somewhere in-doors that would be equally as impressive. We recently made some enquiries for some venues but haven't got anywhere and seem to have hit a brick wall. We're looking for somewhere with possibly a bit of History
and a lot of character.
We're thinking along the lines of:-
tunnels, old railway stations, warehouses, basements, possibly even a church or cathedral.
Something totally out of the ordinary that would be a great experience for our regulars.
I've lived on the Wirral all my life but can't seem to come up with any more ideas. We did have one particular venue in mind but doesn't seem like it will be possible at the moment.
I know there will be many of you on this website who will know the area better than I do so any help on this matter would be hugely appreciated.
