Metronome – the new venue in town

Monday August 13, 2018

Nottingham is renowned for its thriving creative scene, and with a brand new centre for culture opening its doors this autumn, it’s about to get even better.

Located on our Creative Quarter Campus, Metronome is a place to discover the latest music acts from across the globe, alongside a varied cultural programme of spoken word, film screenings and lectures.

We chatted to Metronome promoter, Kristi Genovese, to find out more.

What can we expect?

“Metronome is a new, national centre for cross media arts that features a 350-capacity venue for music, moving image, video games, live performance and spoken word, as well as rehearsal rooms, studios and social spaces. We can’t wait to open the doors – we’re sure you’ll love it!

“Not only will Metronome bring interesting acts from around the world to the city, but also provide lots of opportunities for local emerging talent to support touring bands. Nottingham’s The Invisible Orchestra will be kicking things off with a gig on Saturday 6 October.”

How can our students make the most of Metronome?

“It’s a great space for them to discover lots of brilliant music – an act you aren’t familiar with could become your favourite new band. Lookout for student ticket offers and priority booking opportunities too!”
