FUTURE YARD is a brand-new, 350-capacity space in Birkenhead, an industrial town situated on the banks of the River Mersey. This new community venue will bring some of today’s most exciting new national and international artists to Wirral, while at the same time providing key early performance opportunities for emerging local musicians.
FUTURE YARD is also an innovation space for highly-talented aspiring musicians and future industry professionals, providing artist development opportunities and industry skills training schemes. Future Yard CIC is a registered non-profit, founded to instigate positive change in the industry and leverage music as a force for good within our local community.
Through utilising the power of music, FUTURE YARD aims to inspire local people, creating life-changing opportunities and shaping a new music future.
As an organisation, FUTURE YARD has committed to a long-term goal of becoming the UK’s first carbon neutral grassroots music venue. Working in partnership with Liverpool John Moores University’s Low Carbon Eco-Innovatory, we are currently shaping the long-term design of the building, its energy consumption and developing a range of policies in how the venue operates to achieve this goal. You will find no single-use plastic stocked on our bars or on our artist riders.Click Here To Find Out More
