How to get a gig
We no longer accept physical demos (CDs/ press packs etc.) so please don't send anything by post unless requested.
If we require further information or wish to discuss a booking we will be in touch. Due to the sheer volume of emails we receive, it is unfortunately not possible for us to respond personally to everyone who contacts us.
Thank you for your understanding.
Our Music Policy
Our open mic is usually held on the last Tuesday of the month (with a few exceptions – see events listings to confirm). If you’d like to perform at our open mic we’d love to see you, and we’re sure you’ll leave the night with new friends and contacts. Sign up is from 7pm, but queuing for a slot often has been known to start as early as 6pm, such is the popularity of the night. The list is usually packed within minutes of opening doors.
2 songs per artist. We have a full PA system but no backline so bring whatever you need. Unfortunately we are not able to accommodate backing tracks.
Doors open at 7PM and the music starts at 7.30PM. Free entry for performers. £2 for non-performers.
If you're already booked to play
