Carl Bathgate, Ghostwriter Director, commented, “We are delighted to be able to announce these long-term partnerships after such a challenging year for the industry and are very much looking forwards to 2021. Ghostwriter will be working closely with Mark Spincer (Managing Director, Arena Racing Company) to further develop the Live After Racing brand and also examining how we can diversify the events across the ARC venue estate. In summer 2021 many of the 9,000 - 20,000 capacity sites will be available with full production offering promoters viable outdoor options in such uncertain times. We are also extremely excited by our partnerships with independent venues and together with their teams will be working to improve the sites to best serve touring artists, promoters and customers alike. These venues are great spaces and we are confident that with the right approach they will become venues that live music fans and touring artists can enjoy on a regular basis.”

ABOUT EVENTIM OLYMPIA LIVERPOOL
Eventim Olympia Liverpool, built in 1905 & grade II* listed, is a building of unique architectural & historical importance. It was designed as a purpose-built indoor circus and variety theatre by architect Frank Matcham and is one of only two independently operated Matcham venues. Heralded one of the most prolific theatre architects of all time, his surviving buildings are of national cultural significance. The venue enjoys a rich history within the performing arts, hosting a variety of theatre and music productions and even housing a cinema and a bingo hall over its 115-year life span.
In 1990, the current owners purchased the building and brought it back to life after several years of closure, and it has been in the family ever since. It now holds a wide range of events including live music, sports and comedy, as well as providing the backdrop to some of your favourite TV shows, appearing in productions such as Peaky Blinders (BBC) and Tin Star (Sky Atlantic).
Now firmly established on the touring circuit, with an accessible, diverse offering of cultural events, it welcomes 100k+ local and international visitors a year, across 75+ events.
Located just outside Bristol City centre Motion is housed across 3 listed Victorian warehouses that were originally built as a gasworks and marble factory. In 2006 when the site’s primary function was that of a popular skate park, events began to be staged here with the skate-ramps forming part of the dancefloor. Later in 2015 the complex was developed as full time club-night and gig venues spaces and its next chapter of entertaining the people of Bristol began in earnest.
Late 2016 saw the present Directors take ownership and embarked on extensive 3 year program of refurbishment. Motion received a whole new layout featuring a central stage, improved bar facilities and a DJ booth that sat just above crowd level. The Marble Factory was also transformed into a multi-level arena, with its new design making the best of high vaulted ceilings by incorporating a wraparound mezzanine level delivering an amphitheatre like feel.
In addition to the indoor spaces the venue has the ability to stage outdoor events and has successfully welcomed bands, DJ’s, cinema and food festivals throughout the summer period keeping the offering fresh, eclectic and versatile.
Motion has played host to a wide variety of electronic and live artists over the years including, The Chemical Brothers, BBC Radio 6 Festival, IDLES, Primal Scream, Adam Beyer, Public Enemy, Deadmau5, Death Grips and Stormzy.
