New Crew Locations
While the world has been at a bit of a stand-still, we have been busy working behind the scenes to grow and expand our business even further. We're excited to let you know that we have three new locations in the UK: Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Bristol! We are looking forward to getting to know these new areas and expanding our range of interesting clientele.
Known for its spectacular architecture and die-hard football fans, our first new crew location is the port city of Glasgow, the 2nd largest city in Scotland.
Home to two of Scotland’s biggest football teams resident stadiums, Celtic Park and Rangers Ibrox Stadium, there is no shortage of arena venues in this sports-mad spot. Football is not the only popular pastime however, there are plenty of other sports-themed venues in Glasgow, including the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, Braehead Arena for Ice sports, and Queens Park Amphitheatre.
Another notable venue in Glasgow is the SSE Hydro. Often visited by some of the world's biggest music artists on global tours - this venue was ranked as the fourth busiest arena in the world in 2018, selling over 1 million tickets that year. The Hydro is definitely top of our list of venues we would love to work at following our expansion.
Full of vibrant, youth culture and style, we are very excited to be extending our crew services to the South West, in Bristol.
Nestled in between Somerset and Gloucestershire, Bristol is one of the warmest cities in the UK and is often a popular student destination. Perhaps one of the reasons for this is because of the incredible food scene that it hosts, even being voted the best city in the UK for eating out!
Aside from all the eatery venues in Bristol, two of the most popular music venues are the O2 Academy and Colston Hall which collectively hold 4000 people. However, it is forecasted that in 2024 the long-awaited opening of a stadium venue will finally commence. The YTL Bristol Arena is expected to have 17,000 capacity and is costing £100 million in construction. We are excited to now be in the Bristol area so that when the YTL Arena finally opens its doors, we’ll be able to get involved in some great shows and events.
For our final new crew location, we are heading back over our most Northern border, to the beautiful capital city of Edinburgh. This breathtaking city is brimming with rich history and culture.
Home to the infamous Fringe Festival, the largest arts celebration in the world that has been around for over 70 years.
An extremely popular venue in this city is the stunning Edinburgh Castle, this fortresses presence on the city skyline is unmistakable. Situated on Castle Rock watching over the city, this historic monument has hosted a wealth of concerts by artists from all around the globe.
The whole team at Alpha Crew are super excited to get crewing in all of these beautiful cities in the near future!
