You can tell us more about Newbury.

Live Music Venues
  • Liberty Newbury on Greenham Business Park has reopened and is a great live music venue.
  • Avenue hosts a rock night I believe weekly, the Corn Exchange occasionally hosts bands and the Waterside Centre hosts a variety of different events. Venues where bands place regularly are Snooty Fox, Canal Bar and Falmouth Arms
  • there never seems to be a shortage of people starting a band or are already in one, there's an event called Battle of the Bands which I think is done on a yearly basis. There's Water Side, The Corn Exchange and sometimes they play in village halls. The Hexagon in Reading and The Madejski Stadium sometimes have musical acts there and every year there's obviously Reading Festival which is just up the road.
  • The Original Pig & Paper is a new Gastronomic Bar/Restaurant during the day but holds live music events and themed nights weekly, Every Sunday they hold an Open Mic night. To book slots call 01635 40989
