Nottingham’s Glee Club looks to have found a new permanent home.

Documents seen by show plans by Glee Club owners, Comic Enterprises to move into the Corn Exchange and Clinton Rooms at 10-12 Thurland Street in the heart of Nottingham city centre. contacted The Glee Club back in January about it finding a new base in Nottingham, but we were met with silence.

Now, the comedy club has revealed plans to move into the Grade II listed Corn Exchange and Clinton Rooms, which was last used by Roxy Ballroom and before that fellow comedy club Jongleurs.

The plans outline the creation of a new auditorium on the first floor, with a backstage area alongside a new bar. There will also be a minor extension at mezzanine level so that the kitchen space can be relocated – otherwise the floorspace of the building will remain tee same.

The comedy venue had to move out of its British Waterways home last March after works started to redevelop it into a residential scheme.
