Bloom Jazz AltrinchamThe grand opening of Bloom Live in Altrincham will be on Saturday 4th August.

After an incredibly successful 10 months as Bloom Jazz Club in Goose Green, director Christopher Tunnicliffe is moving to a much bigger venue and expanding his concept, serving up The Ultimate Live Music Experience.  With live music 7 nights a week, this will be the area’s largest employer of musicians, bringing an injection of life to Stamford New Road and helping to boost the profile of, and interest in the town centre.

Opening Night: As well as outstanding emerging talent Peter Swift and his band, Bloom Live has announced an exciting appearance from a former member of The Beautiful South to officially open the new venue.

The new venue boast a much bigger stage capable of holding a 14-piece band, an indulgent lounge where signature cocktails will be served by Bloom’s expert mixologists to your table, and the introduction of a restaurant serving modern European cuisine in a relaxed dining environment.

There will be a range of genres showcased at the venue, from jazz, funk, soul, and blues to pop, reggae, swing, and beyond.  A monthly jam session will also provide opportunity for young musicians to experience playing with established members of a house quartet. Bloom Live is committed to supporting local musicians and developing new talent.

Bloom Jazz club has been described as one of Altrincham’s favourite venues and this expansion into an area with high footfall and prominence will help lift the town centre and is a welcome addition.

Young entrepreneur, Chris Tunnicliffe, has made Bloom Jazz a huge success which in turn has had an impact on other businesses in the area contributing to Altrincham’s reputation as a great night out.

    In general don’t bother going to Altrincham. There is nothing there, all the shops have gone , the grannies have stayed inside. It’s a dead town. It does have however the biggest Tescos for miles. Which for some reason needs to have a huge 3 or 4 stories height roof but only has one floor inside, making it look huge from outside but normal sized when you get in. Strange?

    The best thing about Altrincham is the tram stop which means you can get out & away from Altrincham every 6 minutes (12 minutes Sunday service). Which is not quick enough.

    To Mr Chris Tunnicliffe, congratulations on your success with Bloom and I hope to visit soon.

    @Mr Altrincham

    Dear sir, I’m sorry that you feel that way about our Town, however I believe that you are misinformed. Altrincham is certainly not a dead town, and we have the right people working together to make improvements every day.

    You haven’t really made any valid points in your comment. This combined with your anonymity, although you claim to be “Mr Altrincham”, leads me to believe you are simply another internet troll with nothing better to do than to try and stir the pot for some much needed attention.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but it doesn’t always have to be shared. In your case, I think a quote from Leonardo da Vinci says is all:

    “The greatest deception men suffer is from their own opinions”

    I hope that your opinions will change in the future, and you will see what a great town we have.

  3. I think this is great news, Goose Green is the best part of Alty for an evening drink with places like Bloom, Costello’s, House and the Green Room, so its great that Bloom are moving their winning formula to Stamford New Road. A larger venue for the town and more live music can only be a good thing and I’m looking forward to a visit. Good luck to all involved.

    Altrincham needs positive input such as yours Chris. I can’t imagine anyone taking the first comment seriously and even if they do they should think about about how they can support the town with their energy, input and their money. Bravo to George’s comments to our anonymous friend. I play guitar and sing and have experience running open mic nights. I look forward to visiting the extended Bloom. We so need this type of venue in the town. Keeping music live keeps the people alive.
