Hi there, I can't say for sure, but I think it was closed due to all the trouble in Grand Central. I knew a couple of people who went there and there was always something kicking off at the weekend. The thing is, the authorities knew where and when the 'action' was taking place and had several ways to control it. As always they chose the easy option by simply pulling the plug. Now the trouble makers are split up. Now my nephews on Edgelely don't have a place to go anymore. Sad really. Do you know Tom Handford and Scott Livsey? He drove a blue Scooby.

As far as I know the official line was financial issues, but there was a lot of trouble regarding underage drinkers and anti-social behaviour.

What is happening to Grand Central? Is it going to be re-developed?

i dont know much about this apart from it shutting a couple of years back
what i can say is, i walked past today to go the train station,
and seen a van outside, with men taking boxes of alcohol and water into the club.
a positive sign surely.

Think you'll find they were taking those boxes into the Bowling Alley underneath the club actually pal...

As the manager of the venue at the time it closed, i can assure you it was purely a finacial decision neccesiatated by bad management from the people at the top.   This resulted in the parent company going bust and 8 venues being shut, resulting in around 300 jobs being lost. As far as trouble is concerned, H & H Stockport had far less trouble than many other venues I have worked at and we actually had a very good relationship with the Police and Council.

The grand Central site is being redeveloped to include a new hotel complex.   The Cinema and Swimming Pool will remain but the Bowling Alley, Brannigans & Heaven and hell will be knocked down to make way for the Hotel.
