Full details of the licenses a hidden venue in Nottingham city has applied for have been published. Venue workers said they are planning for community spaces to be used more widely at Hidden Warehouse, a four-storey venue at the back of Swann’s Yard, the alley between Primark and The Works.

A small rooftop bar was run there last summer, which had a capacity of 60, and club nights too. New independent company UK Leisure secured the whole site in December 2021.

After the licensing application was submitted earlier this month, full details of what has been applied for have since been revealed. The opening hours are planned to be 11am until 12midnight on Sunday and Monday, 11am until 3am the following morning on Tuesday to Thursday, and 11am until 4am the following morning on Friday and Saturday.

This is also when recorded music and performances of dance have been applied for. The sale of alcohol has been applied for similar times, with this ending 30 minutes before the venue shuts each night.

There are plans for plays, films and live music events on Mondays to Sundays from 9am until 12midnight. Responsible authorities or any person can make representations to the Licensing Authority until April 8.

Speaking when the application was submitted, Marrianne Thornton, manager and licensee of the premises, said: “We want to get more people into the venue. “It’s gone really well so far, at the start we had nothing because of Covid, but we now want to be more educational.

“We’re hoping it goes far and that a variety of different people rent out the spaces for different things. Hopefully we can become a go-to destination and that people can see how good this building is during the day and at night.”

The plans have gone down well with people in the city centre. Matthew Keywood, 46, from Worksop, said: “I think anything like that is good, especially if it’s educational.

“Anything that can brighten things up and will be better for people is a great thing.”

Helen Ackroyd, 53, from Radcliffe-on-Trent, said: “It’s brilliant, the more people that come into the city centre, the better. It will offer people somewhere different to go, we 100 percent need it.”

Shannon Musibau, 29, from St Ann’s, said: “That would be really nice. It will be really good as a new place for something for people to do.”

Karl Niblett, 30, who works in Old Market Square and is from Castle Donington, said: “It will be quite good, especially as it’s a brand new place. It does look dark and dingy down there at first site, but it will be good.”
