UB40 will take the honour of opening the venue after Lucy Rose’s performance was moved to The Globe.

The Tramshed redevelopment is part of a project to rejuvenate the Grangetown area, and could bring up to 300 jobs.

Local Grangetown councillor Ashley Govier said on the Grangetown community website, “It’s going to be fantastic – this is being provided without any public money, apart from some small funding for the heritage of the building.”

The Tramshed will not be used solely as a music venue, as its set to include a cinema, tech-hub, dance studio space, gallery and café-bar, which will all open at later dates.
