The Multi-Purpose Liverpool Venue, Invisible Wind Factory, Are Launching A Brand New Rollerdrome Near Liverpool Waters
Independent Liverpool business, Invisible Wind Factory, is striving to get Liverpudlians from across the City Region moving again after Lockdown.
The Rollerdrome is an extension to the existing multi-purpose venue located on Regent Road along the Docklands, and will open to the public on Saturday the 22nd May 2021.
The concept for the new venture originated from the team at IWF exploring ways to try and combine exercise, sport and well-being, and then adding into the mix immersive audio-visual production, music and art which only comes natural to the people behind the iconic Kazimier in the heart of the Ropewalks area of Liverpool City Centre.
Sadly the City lost the beloved bohemian sanctuary, The Kazimier, in January 2016 after the demolition of the club to make room for new high-rise on land that was already in heavy use and culturally flourishing.
'We’ve taken this opportunity to link fitness and sport activities with an immersive audio visual experience, and we’re really excited about turning fitness on its head to create something genuinely experimental' - Invisible Wind Factory on The Rollerdrome.
Since then, The Kazimier, also known as Kazimier Productions, have been looking to create a stable base they can genuinely call home for the long run, and ensure they build a bright, stable future.
In the May of 2016, the Invisible Wind Factory, located not far from Vauxhall and a stone's throw from The Commercial District, was the answer and they have only gone from strength to strength in developing upon those strong foundations.
The venue that Invisible Wind Factory now breathes life into, was previously a disused factory
The Kazimier still lives on though, in an other part of Ropewalks, through the Kazimier Gardens which is nestled amongst a amalgamation of various buildings in Seel Street.
After a year that has been exceptionally difficult and emotionally harrowing, the Rollerdrome aims to get people moving in a fun and innovative way whilst still remaining safe during COVID-19 and as the various Steps out of Lockdown are progressively eased.
The team at The Kazimier have produced a number of fantastically creative projects and the Rollerdrome located in Invisible Wind Factory is their latest installment, and will certainly not be their last.
Invisible Wind Factory said: 'We’ve taken this opportunity to link fitness and sport activities with an immersive audio visual experience, and we’re really excited about turning fitness on its head to create something genuinely experimental and unseen before.'
They added: 'We will continue to host world-class live music and club nights, working with local and national promoters but with more on offer during the daytimes. After a year or more away, we want to offer people the ultimate dance floor to return to.'
IWF (Invisible Wind Factory) will have a refreshed focus on activities that promote physical, mental and social well-being for everyone, from young starters, families and solo skaters through to all ages welcome from across the Liverpool City Region.
The opening of the Rollerdrome will be a welcomed addition to the ever-growing cultural landscape in the City, especially after more than 12 months of distress and isolation that has hit every single generation hard.
The goal for the Invisible Wind Factory, located on the cusp of the City Centre, is to be 'an ever-developing destination for visitors, artists and tourists.'

The advert for the Rollerdrome shows a group of people in face masks making their way to the venue; roller skating through the City's underground rail system, and along the Dockland streets to get to the venue located on Regent Road.
The Rollerdrome is just across from Bramley-Moore Dock where Sound City have held several of its festivals a number of times since 2015, which is also to be the location of where the new Everton FC Stadium will be built.
The safety of their visitors is paramount to IWF. With the doors opening to the public from May 22nd, stringent plans are in place to ensure a safe and COVID-19 secure experience for all visitors from start to finish of each experience.
