What's on

The Now legendary Barrel House Ballroom has offered a varied monthly programme of events for many years, always with a strong focus on original live music. Now with an extensive refurbishment including a bespoke state of the art D&B sound system we aim to continue drawing a strong line up of both local and international acts, as well as attracting more established artists. In addition to this we also host regular DJ nights for those looking to go out for a dance.
