The Kazimier, one of Liverpool’s most iconic and beloved music, arts and performance venues is set to return as of May 2016.
After shutting its doors for what was thought to be the final time on New Years Day owing to the redevelopment of the Wolstenholme Square area, the venue is now planning a re-launch at its new found home in Liverpool’s North Docks, 15 minutes from the city centre.
The Invisible Wind Factory is the gig location’s new incarnation and successor, a new complex that offers bigger scale and possibility for Kazimier productions. The first phase of the new space will see the opening of a maker workshop, artist studios, a spacious garden as well as a significantly larger area for performance.
The closure of the independent cultural hub in January marked the end of what many considered to be Liverpool’s most dynamic venues and provoked upset from fans of the unique vibrancy the Kazimier offered.
Amongst these fans was singer-songwriter and LIPA graduate Dan Croll, who expressed his upset at the news of the loss on Instagram, saying that he was “ so grateful to have played and experienced this crazy venue, it’s going to be greatly missed”.
Tickets for ‘Ompahalos – Energy Eternal’, guided tours of the new location’s ‘research facilities’ to be held across the 19th-22nd of May are on sale now. A launch party is to be held on Friday the 27th.
