Andrew, Jon, it’s very exciting that the planning approval has been granted. Can you just remind us what the plans involve?
Andrew: Our vision is to put Bristol on the world stage for live music and entertainment. The iconic Brabazon Hangars – the birthplace of Concorde and supersonic travel – will be reimagined and brought back to life as a 17,000-capacity, net zero carbon, supersonic Arena and live entertainment complex for Bristol and the wider region.
Bristol is the only major UK city without an arena – For the first-time ever, it will make the city a must-play venue for major global artists. Not only that, but it will bring live sport, family entertainment, comedy and theatre shows to the region, making it accessible for people who would otherwise have had to travel to London or Birmingham to see a show.
