Music and other events at The Spice

Here at The Spice we have an eclectic range of music events running 7 days a week. For full event listings, tickets and more information about who's taking to the stage in The Backstage Bar please click on events.

Monday: Open Mic Night

Every Monday night it's our famous OPEN MIC NIGHT which has been running since 2001. An open Session for Singers, Songwriters and Musicians of all kinds to perform original material (although the odd cover version gets sneaked in from time to time!!).

We have a piano and a great PA. There isn't a house band, (it's not a karaoke session)! You'll need to provide your own accompaniment, be it guitar, didgeridoo or whatever.

Sign up time if you want to play is 6.30 pm.
It's a busy night, so get here a bit earlier if you want to be sure of a spot.
The music starts at 7.00 pm.

Tuesday: Spice Pub Quiz

Introducing our new pub quiz every Tuesday at The Spice. There will be a cash prize for the winning team as well as bonus prizes throughout the night.
Quiz starts at 7:30 pm and it's £2 entry per person.
