Open Mic Nights

Open Mic Venues

During the existence of The 4014 Project, we think (but happy to be told otherwise) we visited 18 different pubs and cafes. Some we only visited once or twice, others became more regular music nights.

Many landlords and ladies have moved on since they were kind enough to host us, but either way we'd like to give them a big retrospective shout-out, and thank them for supporting the work of local musicians. Especially as this was a time where live original music had fallen out of fashion with many venues, and let's also remember this was before podcasting and music streaming was commonplace.


Venues that regularly supported our open mic nights:

Rose & Crown, Malmesbury

              Tom & Carol are still hosting regular music nights.

Riffs Bar, Hook

              No gigs currently, but Andy & Tiggy still promote local music

Greyhound, Siddington

              Different management, but still a very busy community pub with live music

Priory Inn, Tetbury

              Different management - no live music

Tavern, Kemble
