midweek, we CLOSE THE CURTAINS
outside of the weekends, we close the curtains and dim the lights, for a series of intimate, candle-lit gigs in our conservatory. A limited number of tables are available for dinner during these shows (unless otherwise stated), for which booking is strongly recommended. Doors at 8.30pm, show starting at 9pm.
weekends mean LATE NIGHT LIVE
Late Night Live comes at the weekends, where the music gets a bit louder, the drinks flow a bit faster and things go on a bit later. A band plus DJ continues to be the format of these nights, often with one of the band themselves spinning for the night, offering an insight into the musical influences that go into the bands own sets, but more importantly keeping you dancing either side of the band being on stage. Entry to all Late Night Live gigs remains free, with things kicking off about 10pm.
