Kingston needs a large live music venue

This petition had 5,662 supporters

Kingston should be proud of its thriving arts and culture scene. Every month there are many and varied live music events, for people of all ages, from local bands to international touring artists...  from new acts to number one chart-toppers. These events contribute to a music scene of national acclaim and are provided without subsidy by tax payers

The only 1000+ capacity venue which regularly houses live music events in our town, The Hippodrome, is under threat from redevelopment into shops and flats. It may even close earlier than the redevelopment starts. 

We the undersigned call on Kingston Council to commit to using all powers available to retain a large capacity venue for live music and concerts in Kingston town centre, and make this commitment clear to residents and potential developers.
