TICKET & ENTRANCE INFO.

FREE ENTRY

Unless otherwise stated, most of our events are free entry. 

ADVANCE TICKETS

There are occasions when we have very popular and internationally renowned artistes on. All are mostly recording and/or famous musicians with high reputations in the business. It is these events where we have to put a small door charge because of their fees and expenses etc. We have tickets which can be purchased on-line at skiddle.com. Tickets have a £1 booking fee, so when it says '£6' the tickets are £5 with the £1 booking fee. 

TICKETS FROM THE BAR & RESERVATIONS.

Please feel free to purchase a ticket from the bar in person or phone (if you are a known regular) and we will reserve one for you.
