At the Library we’re all about supporting local musicians and our lower floor is ideal for sweaty rock shows, intimate acoustic performers, and stand-up comedy alike. In the past we’ve had the likes of Cameron AG, Esther Joy Lane, Girl Power, Julia Meijer, Beta Blocker and the Body Clock, and Rainbow Reservoir perform.

If you want to put on a show just drop us an email (, or get in touch with some of the promoters we’ve worked with like Smash Disco, Pin Drop Promotions, Idiot King, and Divine Schism.
