Renowned Bolton live music venue goes up for auction

The Blind Tiger, a live music venue and bar in Bolton known for showcasing up and coming North West bands and acoustic acts, has been put up for sale by auction.

The venue will go under the hammer later this month, along with more than 100 other properties and plots of land.

The 6,000 sq ft Nelson Square property, which covers two storeys and a basement, has been given a guide price of £150,000‐£200,000. Opened in 2012, Blind Tiger is credited with helping to bring about a surge in the Bolton indie music scene, hosting local bands such as Cabbage and the Blinders, before closing in 2017.

Pugh managing director Paul Thompson said: “The Blind Tiger was part of a renaissance of nightlife and culture in Bolton and the building itself has great potential for a change of use, subject to a buyer obtaining the necessary planning consent.

“Nelson Square itself is a unique historic area in the heart of Bolton. With its attractive public gardens and cobbled streets it would be a prime location for either a residential or a commercial redevelopment.”

Since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in March, Pugh has sold more than 190 lots totalling over £20m at its auctions, which have been held online.

Our next online property auction, featuring properties and land across the UK, including the Blind Tiger in Bolton,
will be held on 21 October. For more details and to view the full auction catalogue click here.
