Iconic Leeds gig venue Brudenell Social Club has scooped a big award at the Music Week 2021 awards.

The legendary venue, which has hosted some huge names in music over its 43 years in the city, took home the Grassroots Venue: Spirit of The Scene at the Music Week 2021 awards.

Fans of the venue were quick to pile on with congratulations on Twitter after hearing the news, with one user saying: “Best venue in the country – by a mile.”

Another said: “Highly deserved. Well done to Nathan and the team.”

While someone else said: “Brudenell is my favourite place in Leeds for a gig.”

The venue originally opened in Leeds in 1913, but was demolished and rebuilt in 1978. With room for 800 people split across its two rooms, it’s stayed true to its working men’s club aesthetic – keeping the old 50’s-style interiors whilst bringing some adventurous music bookings to its home on Queen’s Road.

From introducing brand new, upcoming artists to the city to acting as a home for big names to play intimate one-off shows, if you want to see something really good in Leeds you can always rely on the Brudenell to provide.
