Liverpool’s Central Library is to hold a gig for the first time in the Grade II listed property.

London band Wolf Alice are set to play on Saturday December 7 after donning the stage at Lancaster library.

Libraries are becoming increasingly popular with bands after the likes of Florence & The Machine and Plan B have gigged in them.

After playing the Kazimier last September, the alt-rock quartet are returning to Liverpool to perform at the newly-renovated library.

Several gigs are taking place across the country as part of a national initiative – Get it Loud In Libraries.

Get It Loud In Libraries director, Stewart Parsons, said: “We are thrilled to be working with Liverpool’s Central Library to bring great music to young people who may not have had the chance to see live performance in such a small, intimate space.

“We’re hoping to change their perception of libraries and in the future bring them opportunities to learn about rock journalism, gig photography, artist management and how to put on a buzzing event in a great venue.”
