We Love Live Music!

And from what we can tell, so do you!  Here you can find details of up and coming gigs and events.  Unless otherwise stated, bands are usually on stage around 9pm, with the bar being open from at least 7pm.


Band Nights:

Weekends at Platform 1 are all about live music!  We try and cater for everyone’s tastes, and get as wide a variety of acts and bands as we can.  Even within our first year of being open we’ve had a huge variety of acts, such as blues, rock, acoustic and even a 1960’s themed night!  We always try to get the highest quality of acts onto our stage, and create a friendly, fun and welcoming environment for all of the community.  The majority of our band nights are on a Friday, and the bar is open from 7pm, with bands usually starting at 9pm.

Being a Community Centre we want to encourage and welcome everyone to use our facilities – children and families are welcome to attend our bands nights, but we ask that anyone under the age of 18 is accompanied by an adult, and that they are clear of the bar by 9pm.

We also operate ‘Challenge 25’ in the Buffet Car, so if you are over 18, but look younger than 25, please don’t be offended if we ask for proof of age!  The only forms of ID we are able to accept are an in-date UK Passport, or a valid UK Driving License.

Here are some images from our band nights so far:
