best venues

From its very humble beginnings with decidedly sparse facilities and equipment, The Roadhouse is now widely regarded by both artistes and audiences, as one of the best ‘live’ venues in the whole of the Midlands. It is nowadays renowned for its intimate, relaxed and friendly ambience  which rivals even the established top venues, with more comfortable, interesting and visually appealing surroundings


The Roadhouse Club was first set up on an informal basis for local friends and music lovers after the closure and eventual demolition of the nearby “Breedon Bar” Now, it is the area`s leading music venue and has been for many years.
