T: 0116 262 5782



Capacity: 200 Main Room / 80 The Vault

Dressing rooms: One

Booking policy: “We’re open Monday to Saturday with a range of different events every day including live music, but also expanding to live magic and illusion, Esports, comedy and more. If it’s good, we’ll book it.”

Best unsigned/emerging acts currently playing the venue: The Slow Readers Club, Press To MECO, Chapter and Verse, As December Falls.

The best advice you can give the manager of unsigned/emerging artistes: Get your EPK’s online and send a dropbox/google drive link with all the assets a venue could ever need like generic tour/artiste images in different social sizes (cover image, thumbnail, Instagram, stories etc) so we can pull together everything we need for promo easily and efficiently.

Better known acts who’ve played the venue:  Kasabian (first ever show!) and Ellie Goulding before they got big. More recently, Shikari Sound System for our first anniversary since the takeover, Ferocious Dog did an underplay show this year, we were a stop on Mallory Knox’s last ever tour, and Dave Mcpherson of InMe is here this month!
