The Empire, Coventry


The Empire sits within the cultural quarter of Coventry, a short walk from Coventry city centre. Nestled comfortably between Coventry University and the new creative hub and independent retail quarter that is Fargo Village.

The Empire was the former home of Coventry Universities Student Union Club. Due to its close links to the University, The Empire holds one official Student Union event per week on Wednesday nights (Strike Back), as well as sponsoring a number of clubs and societies.

The Empire is a large multi use, music and club venue, with the mission to showcase local, breaking and established bands and artists. The venue has invested heavily to offer a destination that will attract some of the best touring acts around, this investment has allowed them to build three artist en suite dressing rooms, green room and VIP bar, and most importantly, a stage and front of house sound and light system that will rival some of the better and bigger live music venues in the UK.
