Grapes

A traditional pub on Trippet Lane, the upstairs room at the pub has seen a wide variety of bands play there, including the Arctic Monkeys first ever gig. Downstairs has a long tradition of relaxed folk music. Over the years, it has also featured various luminaries of the improv scene, including Derek Bailey.

A fairly uninviting room, with steep stairs, but they gave a chance to so many acts. Downstairs was (and remains) a place for folk musicians to gather and perform.
