Wrotham Arms Broadstairs Musical instruments 1

Live music at the Wrotham Arms

Upcoming events

The Wrotham Arms is the premier live music venue in Broadstairs, featuring Rock, Folk, Soul, Funk, Reggae and Blues. The quality stands alone in town and with acts travelling from far and wide to play here, you will be able to catch something that no other venue has. Excellent acoustics and a fantastic vibe make the gig nights special.

The pub proudly hosts the Wrotham Arms Blues and Roots Club, the monthly Wired electric jam and the famous Woodshed folk session, and is an official venue of the town's two annual music festivals, Broadstairs Folk Week in August and the Broadstairs Blues Bash in February.

Best of all we don't charge to see these quality acts...  just remember to buy a couple of pints!
