The Loco Klub is a new and exciting underground Arts venue opening in the Bristol enterprise zone beneath the passenger shed in Temple Meads. The project is a creative collaboration between The Invisible Circus and Artspace Lifespace who as sister companies brought you such ground breaking projects as The Island and Pro cathedral. The venue is rising from the ashes of the old railway social club that formerly stood on the site and as well as boasting a series of fabulous performance spaces in the former social club bar rooms also holds a hidden treasure, a series of Brunel built railway arches hidden behind the flock wall paper and wooden panels of the social club, the former ash pits of the original station above these underground caverns are a unique and jaw dropping performance space unlike anything else in the city.

This atmospheric new venue will host a wide variety of arts events and performances including promenade theatre shows, Circus Cabaret, dance performances, music events, markets and exhibitions as well as returning to its roots as a social hub. We are excited to be creating a new performance space in the city and will be releasing details of events for 2016 in the new year. Until then we are pleased to announce Raucous Theatre will be hosting the first event in the space in Oct with an amazing promenade theatre show called The Stick House., following on from that we will have the end of Circus City celebrations there on the 31st of Oct and be hosting a series of weekend events through November with Impermanence Dance company in residence among other special guests.
The project has so far been supported by many Bristol creatives including Circus City, Raucous Theatre, Watershed, New Dawn Traders, Tobacco factory, Boomtown fair, Bristol Old Vic and youth music project Boom Satsuma and we look forwards to a diverse range of events and happenings from these as well as other local, national and international guests.
