Music Venues in Colchester

Music Venues in Colchester

Having been a teacher in the Colchester area for multiple years now, I have become a part of the local music scene here playing in and watching a wide variety of live bands. Although there may not be a large stadium or arena, there are many small independent venues where you can watch a huge selection of live music. I’m always on the lookout for new music, so I thought I would compile a list of venues so you can support our live music scene too!

The Bull is Colchester's self-styled music venue and for the most part that is correct. Located on 2 - Crouch Street, Colchester CO3 3ES, frequent live bands as well as open mic /jam sessions are hosted here every week for musicians looking to gain more experience. Music is varied but probably land more towards AOR than anything else. The usual clientele is varied but leans toward the 30+ market. However, don't let this put off the younger music fans. They is always something for everyone. Music usually doesn't kick off until around 9 o'clock and the place can be pretty quiet before then. But once the music starts it can be VERY busy with rough and ready crowds. Serving the usual selection of drinks plus a handful of real ales. All In all a good musicians night out.

Charter Hall is the main venue in Colchester for stand-up comedy and large tribute bands to perform. Recent visitors have included Roy 'Chubby' Brown and other high-class acts. Although some performers are not to everyone's taste, the hall itself is well-equipped with padded seats and designed acoustics. Staff are always helpful and parking is ample, although you now have to pay to park. In all, a great theatre-style venue located on Colchester Leisure World Colchester CO1 1YH.

Colchester Jazz Club is a great place for the fans of sophisticated Jazz in a relaxed and luxurious setting, Colchester Jazz club is the place for you. Located on Old London Road, Marks Tey, Colchester, CO6 1EJ, Colchester Jazz Club hosts Traditional Jazz every Sunday Evening. I have seen some of the greatest musicians and bands in the UK and Europe here and always promises to be a great night. Upcoming acts The Muskrat Ramblers and Matt Palmers Eagle Jazz Band are sure to bring the spirit of fine New Orleans Jazz to the streets of Colchester.
