The time has come to open Madding Crowd

**Welcome To Bournemouth’s Brand New Live Music Venue

Madding Crowd**

In recent years many musicians and industry professionals from the Bournemouth and Poole music scene have said the area needs an intimate yet good sized live music venue. A dedicated town centre venue, created and designed with both musicians and the audience in mind.

Finally that venue has arrived – Madding Crowd opened it’s doors to the public in July 2018.

Located between Debenhams and Clarks, the blue doorway leads you up to the brand new facilities with an in-house PA system, backline and sound engineer…the perfect place to perform.

There is LIVE MUSIC EVERY NIGHT OF THE WEEK plus most events are free entry.

Even with a capacity restriction due to a fire escape…the show must go on! Operating with a smaller crowd than planned, the music scene has been amazingly supportive with fantastic shows taking place such as acts from America, Paris, all over the UK and the local area.

Each week continues with live music from 5pm every day, ideal for a refreshing beverage straight from work. Street-style food menus are available with table service plus exclusive drink brands to add to the customer experience.

The impressive programme includes jazz, country, rock, world music, folk, vintage and so much more. Acts are encouraged to book the venue for music projects and already album/EP launches are being confirmed with Miss Annie & The Midnight Shift plus soloists Jade Norris and Mikey Ball. Other events include reggae acts from London plus jive dance instructor Paul Walker will be presenting a nostalgic evening each week.

Madding Crowd is keen to work with everyone to help Bournemouth develop as a centre for the South’s live music scene. Partnerships include the education sector such as the Bournemouth Academy of Modern Music and the Arts University Bournemouth by offering paid work placements and a platform to showcase talent.

Bands performing this year will be Saints of Sin, SIRPICO, Bel, Erica Drive, One Word and others are encouraged to contact the venue to be part of the community ethos. Special events will be ticketed for music fans to meet their favourite signed acts with big news being announced in the next few months.

Listings and more information can be found on the website and don’t forget to download the app for regular updates plus drink promotions.

Madding Crowd aims to be a thriving hub for live music and welcomes everyone to get involved.
