News: The Wombats will headline reopening of Liverpool’s historic Arts Club

You don’t need me to tell you how much music is part of the fabric of Liverpool.

Nowhere is this truer than down Seel Street, where you’ll find the historic Arts Club, a creative hub since 1814, when it was the only English arts institute outside of London. Surprisingly closed earlier this year, after having been managed by the Academy Music Group, this weekend will see a triumphant reopening, with Merseyside indie favourites The Wombats set for 2 dates on Friday 15th and Saturday 16th September.

Aaron Mellor, MD of Tokyo Industries explains why this is an important juncture for the venue as “Liverpool needs to support and push its creative industries.” He continues “We are preserving a lot of the building’s original character, while adding improved light and sound, better flow and circulation.”

No-one better, then, to kick off this new chapter than The Wombats, formed 20 years ago, just a stone’s throw away on Mount Street at the Paul McCartney-founded Liverpool Institue of Performing Arts (LIPA). Currently riding high off the success of 2021’s record Fix Yourself, Not The World, which took them to number 1 for the first time. TikTok propelled them into the consciousness of a new generation with the Oliver Nelson remix of their 2015 hit Greek Tragedy.

It means tickets for this show will be in demand from fans new and old, and they’re available from the venue’s website
