Every Saturday it’s party time at The Fishpond! The bar will play host to fantastic live bands who we know will get you dancing, covering tunes from a range of decades, genres and tastes. All our Saturday night bands are free of charge and kick off from 9pm in the bar.


Sunday nights don’t have to mark the end of the weekend. At the Fishpond we see celebrate sundays with A NIGHT WITH MM, our popular open mic night. Its our ultimate open mic experience and we welcome all acts all ages. You can expect the unexpected at one of our open mic nights and its always well attended . . . but if you can strum a guitar, knock out a tune or bang a drum we want you! If you’ve got a talent and you want to share it with us please get in touch. Please see our online gigs listing for further information.


We regularly attract high profile artists at The Fishpond and as such, from time to time we will host an intimate gig in our ballroom. With a maximum capacity of 150 people you are sure to get up close and personal with big artists. Sometime these gigs will attract a ticket fee, but you know what the say “you get what you pay for”.
You can expect comedy, cabaret, music and dances . . . you name it we can host it.
