Music Venues in Colchester

There is nothing like going to see a great band live and here at Guitar Lessons Canterbury we really encourage our students to go and see as many artists live as they can. That includes checking out the local music scene for up and coming bands! We also get asked about the best music venues to start gigging at in Canterbury after setting up a band - to answer all of this we have compiled a short list of the best music venues in Canterbury to check out. Enjoy! In no order...

The Marlowe Theatre is a fantastic venue to go and watch some seriously established bands. The likes of Van Morrison, José González and Natalie Imbruglia have all performed here, with many more internationally renowned acts planned for future appearances. The venue less suited for a small local band, it is ideal for medium to larger local bands from Canterbury. With good ticket prices and even an appearance from Pop Idol's Gareth Gates, you should get yourself down to the Marlowe Theatre to find out what is going on.

The Farm House is a great local music venue in Canterbury, located at 11 Dover Street, CT1 3HD. Having seen the likes of Mumford & Sons and Two Door Cinema Club perform in front of packed audiences as they rose to forefront of the UK music scene the Farm House is a fantastic venue to start your gigging career if you are a local band, it is also a top venue to go and watch up and coming bands. Good atmosphere too, well worth checking out.

University of Kent Student Union holds some great nights, with the likes of Zane Lowe, the Ministry of Sound, Pendulum, B*Witched and S Club 7 rocking audiences over the last few years! Now divided into two separate venues, The Venue and The Attic, both are excellent venues to check out the best music bands at the University of Kent have to offer. The perfect venue for local bands to grow their audience it is worth getting in contact with Kent Uni to get yourself a gig here. Fantastic night out too.

Beercart Arms is the perfect place to start your gigging career. A great local pub located at 14 Beer Cart Lane, CT1 2NY their live music nights on Thursdays are a must for watching up and coming band or starting to build your audience with your band. Simply a top music venue in Canterbury - you got to get yourself there.
