The event is open to anyone, regardless of genre. However, we can only accept acoustic instruments due to the performance space.

Spaces are limited – please fill in the form below to express interest. All we need is your name, contact details and to know what instrument you play and what you'd like feedback on. It's ok if you're not sure yet!

We won't spam you with loads of emails and we will treat your data with the utmost respect. 


Whatever your genre, tune up your instruments, grab a cup of coffee and join us for an evening of great music.
