Nation, the home of Cream in Liverpool, is closing at the end of the year as part of redevelopment plans.

Cream won't be coming to an end, though, as Wolstenholme Square will be getting a new "subterranean music venue", retaining Nation's "industrial" and "underground" feel, according to a press release.

Full details on the multi-room club are soon to be announced, but it's promised to deliver better quality production and make it adaptable to "create one cavernous space".

Nation opened in 1992, since welcoming the likes of Tiësto, Ferry Corsten, Sven Väth and Loco Dice through its doors, but a £40 million regeneration of Wolstenholme Square, creating a host of 10-storey buildings, means it's time to come to an end.

A Cream spokesperson said: "The Elliot Group have taken on board the importance of retaining the cultural and musical hub that Wolstenholme Square offers and our ideas and ethos for the new venue.

"Ourselves and the thousands of people who have passed through Nation's doors hold a deep attachment to the venue and what it stands for and the plans present us with an incredible opportunity to create an exciting new music venue for the city."
