The ACE Centre in Nelson, marked its 10th Anniversary at the weekend with a free evening of entertainment for its customers, to say thank you for their loyal support over the last decade.
Exactly 10 years to the day the multi-million pound facility first opened its doors – June 8th 2009 –it hosted an evening with popular male vocalist Stephen Bayliss and a pie and peas supper.
Sean Lawler, Manager of the ACE Centre, said: “It was a great night and good to see so many of our regular customers enjoying themselves; we certainly plan to host similar events in the future.
“The ACE Centre is a wonderful venue for the town and for Pendle, with so many different aspects for entertainment, eating, meetings and celebrating.”
In 2009, the opening of the centre was marked with a week-long programme of events, including stand-up comedy, live music and a very special performance from Florence and the Machine, who went down a storm with the crowds who had popped along to see what the brand new, state-of-the-art ACE Centre had to offer.
The venue houses a function suite, a performance area for cinema, theatre and live music, a Courtyard Bistro, dance and drama studio, creative arts room, gallery space and meeting rooms.
