The failed concept of the National Centre for Popular Music: What went wrong and what lessons can be learned.
This essay looks at the failed concept of the National Centre for Popular Music (NCPM) in Sheffield, UK. The NCPM was intended to be a pop music museum and entertainment center that would attract tourists to Sheffield. However, the project was fraught with problems from the start, and it eventually had to be closed down due to lack of interest and financial viability. This paper will examine the reasons for the fail of the NCPM, its impact on Sheffield, and what lessons can be learned from this failed visitor attraction.
