O2 to sponsor Southampton Guildhall

Daily Echo: Southampton Guildhall Southampton Guildhall

SOUTHAMPTON Guildhall is to be renamed, the Daily Echo can reveal.

The Grade II listed building will be renamed O2 Guildhall Southampton in a move Southampton City Council has described as a “massive step forward” in the establishment of city's Cultural Quarter.

The city council-owned venue, which is operated by Live Nation UK, will become the 16th in the country to be named after the mobile phone company.

The venue, which opened in 1937, plays host to a wealth of entertainment including rock, pop, comedy, classical orchestras and family entertainment.

Paul Latham, chief operating officer of Live Nation, said: “This is a fabulous example of how we at Live Nation work with our respective partners to deliver a great offering to our customers.

“In this instance, we are combining the heritage and civic pride of our partner at Southampton Council with the vision and talent of our marketing partners at O2, to deliver enhanced facilities and engagement opportunities.”

Cllr Matt Tucker, cabinet member for economic development and leisure services for Southampton City Council, said: “Having this landmark building, as an O2 venue, represents a massive step forward in the establishment of the city's Cultural Quarter.

“This new relationship will help ensure that O2 Guildhall Southampton remains one of the most important event venues on the South Coast, encourage more visitors to the city and provide value for the people of Southampton.”

I assume this is to ward off the possibility of putting in a concert venue in the Mayflower Park development. I'm not sure O2 Guildhall is really equipped but maybe it will have some investment into it now.

Seriously it is not what the place is going to be called, people will only visit Southampton if the city is run properly and residents will appreciate if our McCouncil start providing proper public services rather than keep on cutting those under one lame excuse or the other.

Of course it will always be the Guildhall. O2 will only be it's name from a commercial point of view. This association with O2 will make a far wider audience aware of the venue's presence and the events going on there. It can only be a good thing for the city surely? A city that has very little to offer other than the cruise terminal, a sea museum, a (currently) high-flying Premier League football team....oh and a hell of a lot of people who clearly don't want change or progress! The building is obviously becoming a financial strain. I cannot imagine that it's current uses raises a huge amount of money compared to what the upkeep must cost. I would have thought this move is purely to raise the profile as an entertainment venue and in-turn a boost to the local economy.

I apologise but I am struggling to see how this is a bad thing.

Maybe that's what O2 are hoping to do, encourage locals and people from further afield to support the venue and give the city a bit more a of variety of entertainment in the city! O2 are no mugs when it comes to running these sort of places successfully.

I completely agree about the acoustics in the venue. Solutions are available without the need to damage or alter the listed building to any great extent. O2 will no this and no doubt invest to make the venue attractive.

After closing all the manufacturing in Southampton, ventures like this are where the future of the local economy is going to be. Locals going out for a bite to eat before a gig and a couple of drinks afterwards. People coming from further afield and staying in a hotel, doing a spot of shopping the next day.

Things like this are part of a much bigger picture.....or of course the building could be turned into more flats with no parking.

There's the Guildhall, the building owned by Southampton City Council. Then there's Southampton Guildhall, the venue managed by Live Nation. It's the venue that's got the tie-up with O2, not the building. It's no different to the Boat Show. It takes place on Mayflower Park, owned by the Council, but is managed by National Boat Shows, is sponsored by PSP and is therefore the PSP Southampton Boat Show. Has anyone any complaints about the Boat Show incorporating the name of its sponsor into its name? Although Southampton Guildhall is a permanent venue and the Boat Show is an annual event, the business model is very similar.

Yes, you've reminded us many times that Labour is a different type of animal nowadays.

I don't agree with this move either.

But to go around calling all business 'capitalism' shows a narrow vision & quite frankly a lack of understanding of economics.

After all, the O2 Arean (aka The Dome) in London was rescued by O2 wasn't it? I'm sure you would have lots to bleat about if it was stood empty.
The dome is not a civic building please keep to the real world.

The Guildhall itself won't become the O2 Southampton Guildhall any more than the (listed) Royal Pier pavilion became Kuti's. One is the bulding, the other is the trading name of the business that operates in it.

I've thought about this and come to the conclusion I don't care. No one in the real world is going to start calling it the 'O2 Guildhall' and all the money from the sponsorship deal will be used to boost Live Nation's profits and make someone in America slightly richer. It will make literally no difference to anything else.

I totally agree,

The Grade II listed building will be renamed O2 Guildhall Southampton in a move Southampton City Council has described as a “massive step forward” in the establishment of city's Cultural Quarter.

I wonder if they actually mean that this will help put it on the map and bring other large sponsered events to the quarter rather than O2 having anything to do with culture

Of course it will always be the Guildhall. O2 will only be it's name from a commercial point of view. This association with O2 will make a far wider audience aware of the venue's presence and the events going on there. It can only be a good thing for the city surely? A city that has very little to offer other than the cruise terminal, a sea museum, a (currently) high-flying Premier League football team....oh and a hell of a lot of people who clearly don't want change or progress! The building is obviously becoming a financial strain. I cannot imagine that it's current uses raises a huge amount of money compared to what the upkeep must cost. I would have thought this move is purely to raise the profile as an entertainment venue and in-turn a boost to the local economy.

I apologise but I am struggling to see how this is a bad thing.
You are correct. I too have been to many of the other O2 venues. This will hopefully have the same impact in terms of the quality of acts attracted as O2 Sheffield, Leeds etc. we always seem to be overlooked. Bring it on.

The repairs to the Civic Centre started over 3 years ago. Were Labour in power then?

What is the Sea City bed? Yet again you don't make sense.

Again, there is absolutely no connection with this story and the pay of Council workers. Only a moron would seek to make.

This is great news, O2 has a lot of credibility as far as music venues are concerned & it is only a name after all.
Hopefully I won't have to go to Brixton O2 Academy again & have to stand on that weird sloping floor.

What is in a name? Sheffield / Liverpool both called O2 Arena. It is what takes place in a building that matters. Trivial to get your selves wound up just over a name. It will always be the Guildhall to Southampton folk. But if O2 are putting money in....then what is your problem?
Leisure areas in cities is not new. Get real. Southampton has, if it is to survive with good investment, keep modernising for the people. Not a great venue for music. Acoustics are awful and the building needs far better seating. Mayflower is the premier event location. Much better than the BIC at Bournemouth by miles.

So why were you not saying that when people were on here attacking the tories over that project?
why when posters were saying how the Tories left Labour with a debt or decision to scrap that project why did you not say NO they didn't it was a Labour project just out of interest?
Once again ..... factually incorrect.

So Lone Ranger I say what you've posted & you say "factually incorrect" your not in front of the police saying no comment or factually wrong you know so if I'm indeed factually incorrect does that make you wrong as well?

You are saying that Council staff should be protecting services under threat due to reduced funding from Central Government by taking money out of their own pockets to pay for them. I don't understand how you think that is fair or justifiable. Do you think soldiers should take a cut in pay to ensure there are enough bullets to continue operations in Afghan? Nurses - bandages? Now, instead of some incoherent rant, can you just answer the question.

I went to a Comprehensive school( Labour dream) where we had approximately 60 in our class so the teacher never had enough time to teach us about punctuation marks or vowels or any of the so called correct ways of writing letters.

I went to a Comprehensive school( Labour dream) where we had approximately 60 in our class so the teacher never had enough time to teach us about punctuation marks or vowels or any of the so called correct ways of writing letters. as long as we could spell & read that's all that mattered so once again what language are you suggesting I write in Khap Khon Khap? Khon Wayne! loosehead
