Wrotham Arms Broadstairs Musical instruments 1

Live music at the Wrotham Arms

The Wrotham Arms is the premier venue for live music in Broadstairs, playing host to an eclectic array of bands, artists and genres every weekend.

There’s live music most Tuesday and Friday nights, and regularly on Sunday afternoons - with something to satisfy every musical taste, be it rock, folk, soul, funk, reggae or blues.

Up-and-coming acts and well-established performers travel from far and wide to play here, with the excellent acoustics and intimate vibe making every gig night special. And best of all, there’s no charge to see these quality acts - just remember to buy a couple of pints!

The centre of Broadstairs' live music scene, the Wrotham Arms also 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.

Please note if you are viewing this on a large screen like a computer or a tablet, the listings go downwards in two columns like a newspaper, not left to right like a calendar.  This is so the page layout works properly on mobile devices too.
