New venue set to open its doors

A new events venue will soon be opening its doors in Matlock.

“The Loft” will open today for the start of The Matlock festival and aims to compliment the emerging performance arts scene in the town.

The Loft is a community arts and entertainments venue, which will be available for private hire and public events.

Located above the Princes Building shops, directly opposite the Wetherspoon’s pub, the facilities include a flexible floor space and furniture arrangement, stage, licenced bar, changing facilities and lighting and sound equipment.

A spokesperson for the new venue said “We wanted to open up the venue which until recently has sat empty back into use for the local community. It’s a really versatile space and we’d love to see it being used for all types of private and public events and activities.”
