If you're familiar with Cardiff's live music scene, you obviously know Clwb Ifor Bach. What you might not know is that the legendary Womanby Street music venue has plans to expand into the abandoned building next door.

The plans, which have just been unveiled today (and can be consulted onsite at the venue from 10am to 6pm), were designed by architects Nissen Richards Studio and propose a 800 capacity venue that is noticeably lacking in the Welsh city: "Cardiff can cater for bands who pull crowds of 80, 8,000 and 80,000 but there are too many gaps in between," Clwb Ifor Bach Chief Executive Guto Brychan explains. "We want to host more events and entertain more people, whilst continuing to champion Welsh culture and language in all its forms. Having a larger venue also ensures that Clwb will be able to develop its role as a sector leader in Wales through the development of grassroots talent, skills development and community engagement for the sustainability and growth of the music sector. This means the building will not only future proof Clwb but also the wider music sector in Cardiff and Wales."

The upgrade will make sure that the 35-year old venue continues to host some of the best concerts in town, now with a fresh face and improved conditions. You can check out the plans online via their website.
