Most nights after the curtain has come down in the theatre, the bands will be tuning up front of house. We look to bring some of the best local and touring festival bands to our stage to pluck your heart strings or get you dancing on the tables. We want to provide a stage for both local emerging talent and top-notch touring acts to strut their stuff.
