We plan to bring you a continually-updated listing of live music events at pubs selling good real ale.

Licensees and Musicians are welcome to contact us with details of bookings.

We will publish whatever we are told, in good faith.
Please telephone the pub to confirm, as all these arrangements are outside our control.

The Live Music Act 2012 is now law.
Pubs can put on live music for an audience of up to 200 between 8am and 11pm without applying for a licence.
Even larger audiences are permitted if the music is not amplified.
