Sunday Sessions - Free live music every weekend
Our music offering includes the Marchington Sunday Sessions, featuring the best in acoustic roots, rock, pop, folk, blues and country music, every Sunday from 5.30pm.
As well as the best local performers, we specialise in attracting nationally-known acts and festival favourites to appear in more informal 'stripped down' mode. Bands and artists who've played the Sunday Sessions include the likes of Merry Hell, Wille & The Bandits, Ferocious Dog, Gwyn Ashton, Ben Holder, Marc Eden, Neverland, Chris Hall (R Cajun), Scott Doonican - BarSteward Son, Jolly Jock, TwoMan Ting, Nina Baker, Sons Of Clogger, Mojosa and many more. Ali Campbell and UB40 used the pub as a venue for a national media event ahead of their reunion appearance at the nearby Bearded Theory Festival in 2014

Raindogs 24th November 5;30
Raindogs play an eclectic mix of covers and originals; uplifting, melodious and melancholic in equal measure. Sublime vocals supported by a heady mix of drums, bass, acoustic and electric guitars and saxophone all topped off with sumptuous three part harmonies and an occasional glockenspiel solo from Neil Young to Nick Cave, from Tom Waits to The Doors, from Elbow to The Beatles, there’s something for everyone, especially if they like to stray off the beaten track…
