One is a club for everyone for all public events, and the other is a student venue for the Students Union events.
We are one of the oldest and best student union venue's in the country. We also boast the longest running chart party night in Bournemouth - Lollipop.
The party started back in 1995 and hasn't stopped since. We live in the grade 2 listed ex-central fire station at the top end of Bournemouth town, a stones throw from the railway station and 3 excellent kebab shops, KFC & Subway!
Currently there are no events for the The Old Firestation Bournemouth .
Get off at the train at Bournemouth station and follow the signs towards the town centre. You will go through an underpass. Once out of the underpass keep walking along Holdenhurst Road. If you are on the left side of the road, you will come accross the firestation on the left, just after the first left turning. If you are on the right hand side of the road, walk until you come accross the second crossing (it is a simple island with bollards) and cross the road. Straight ahead is the Old Fire Station.
The front entrance is used for live gigs, some public events and daytime events. For most student events the rear entrance is used. To find the rear entrance, continue walking along Holdenhurst Road to the corner of Cotlands road and take a right. 50yrds down on the right is the entrace to our rear yard, signed with a Bournemouth University notice on the gateaway.
If traveling from the north on the A338 take the 4th exit off, after passing the Welcome to Bournemouth sign. Once off the A338, follow the road until you reach a roundabout, and take the 3rd exit onto Holdenhurst Road. We are just past the first turning on the left, on the left hand side of the road.
There is a large car park at the rear of the venue. To find this, After the right turn onto Holdenhurst Road, take the first left turn into Cotlands Road. Follow the road around to the left and take the right turn into a public pay and display car park
