Luminar, Britain’s largest nightclub operator, has revamped two of its venues to provide a live music offer at a cost of £100,000 each. The venues, Tru in Brighton and Oceana in Plymouth, have a capacity of 850 and 1,000 respectively. Luminar also revealed that it has retained James Bruce, formerly of music venue operator Mama Group, to book acts for the two sites. Tim Howard, head of entertainment at Luminar, said: “Luminar clubs regularly host performances by many of the country’s leading artists and enhancing this operation is a natural progression. “Brighton and Plymouth both have a vibrant live music scene, huge catchment areas, yet under represented with suitable venues. The venues will fill this gap and provide a fantastic experience to musicians, music fans and promoters alike, a number of the big national promoters have already shown an interest in the venues. The work will be completed in time for the peak autumn indoor touring season.” At its full year results for the year to 26 February, released in May, Luminar listed live music among its new entertainment offers that are beginning to increase footfall and spend per head.
