The studio currently houses over 250 musicians and more than 50 bands who make up a large percentage of Liverpool’s well known music scene.
Thousands of angered people have signed a petition on the change.org website set up by Veselin Mihaylov who says changing the building will have a negative impact on the city’s music scene.
“If the building closes it will have a huge negative impact on the Liverpool music scene as there is a chronic shortage of flexible and permanent rehearsal space in the city,” said Veselin.
