THE OWNER of West Sussex venue The Rec Rooms (cap. 350) in Horsham says the venue’s year has been a success, particularly in helping new and emerging artistes.

Stu Green cites Flight Brigade as one of the best new acts playing the venue, along with Ashton Lane, Emma Stevens, Megan O’Neil and George Hennessey.

“Some of our support acts have been breathtaking and we see a growing popularity and following after each gig,” says Green.

“We have had a hugely successful year and try to book almost every musical genre to appeal to all, and I think this is appreciated by our audiences.

“As we evolve we will continue to upgrade our lighting and improve the already excellent sound. We hope to venture more into the beautiful parks of Horsham in the summer and festival months – who doesn’t love an outdoor gig?,” adds Green.

The venue typically offers live music on Fridays and Saturdays, with Ska nights selling particularly well, and country music events growing increasingly popular.

More established artistes playing The Rec Rooms include from Kiki Dee, Muddy Waters jnr, The Christians and SKAbretta.
