Brighton venue The Haunt has announced that it is moving into the former cinema next door in order to more than double its current capacity. Next month, it will re-open over five floors in the city’s Savoy Centre.

With a 350 capacity in its current location, the new venue will hold up to 825 people. Retracting walls will also mean it can host 350, 600 and 825 capacity events without looking embarrassingly empty. A smaller 150 capacity second room will also be available for smaller shows.

The old venue will close on 1 Sep, with the new one opening its doors on 19 Sep. There are already 50 shows on sale between the opening and Christmas, with performances from acts including Fat White Family and Swim Deep. The venue has also confirmed that club nights such as Fat Poppadaddys and Secret Discotheque will continue to run, while it will also be working on new nights to take advantage of the larger space.
