Our nights can get busy, so book seats if you can via the Contact and Bookings Form on our Home Page (Click Contact & Booking Seats in the menu above).

A NOTE REGARDING THE CURRENT PANDEMIC & RESTRICTIONS ON SOCIAL GATHERING. It is with huge regret we postponed our March to July & Nov 2020 shows. It will probably be necessary to postpone future shows or go online and we will keep you informed. The safety of our audience, acts, volunteers and members at our venue is paramount to us and we don’t take this decision lightly – since we started out in 2005 we have never pulled a gig, but this is a time to consider and look out for others. We did manage to run outdoor shows at the Greyhound from August to October so let’s hope we will be back in person in some form this year!
