Music

Live Music Wed & Thur from 9.30pm, Fri & Sat from 11:00pm,
Sunday Dance Sessions from 7:00pm.
Free Entry – But please give generously to the collection bucket!

Wednesday to Saturday we showcase the cream of Bristol’s live music scene and top touring acts. Wednesday and Thursday tend to be days for gentle foot tapping to new folk, top jazz and virtuosos on their days off. Friday and Saturday means dancing shoes and anything from a 25 piece Samba band to a skankin’ Latin-funk hip-hop orchestra. Sundays we host a range of inclusive dance nights from Swing to Tango. Whatever the night, we’ll bring you handpicked stars from across the musical galaxy!
