London developers, The Olympian Group, have purchased the site that Legends stands on and intend to demolish it, in order to build yet another Motel chain within the city centre. In the process, they will be destroying an iconic piece of Manchester history, for both our music scene and our LGBTQ community. At present it is host to Bollox, Homoelectric, Club Lash, Twisted Wheel and Black Planet amongst others.
Also this building has huge historic significance, as much the Cavern or the 100 Club. This building is the site of Twisted Wheel which is the longest running club in the world. This was the most famous club in Manchester from the 1960's onwards, hosting amongst others The Kinks and Ben E King.
It's not a done deal yet and it doesn't have to be - let's save Legends...
