Information for Aspiring Artistes (for bookings!)

Most of our gigs are now “unplugged”, as the venue does not need PA unless there is a sound balance issue.

We’ve prepared a longer document here that gives PA availability etc., but here are the main things to know:-

  • We run concerts once/month, generally 2nd-Tuesday-of-the-month and not in July/August
  • We book a wide range of music – see our gigs page to judge
  • Most of our bookings are made on the basis of recommendation or having heard the performer.
  • Ticket prices reflect artistes’ fees.
  • We generally hope for an audience of 30+ but we can cope with more!
  • We make our own posters and PR material, but need good images and blurbs to do so
  • Penicuik is very close to the Edinburgh, Leith and Nitten (Newtongrange) folk clubs, so we avoid (mutually)  booking acts who are also appearing at these clubs.
