Free entry, no booking required. The Bench Room cafe open from 5.00 pm for drinks and snacks.

On the first Friday of every month, our Sound curators hold a listening party, and everyone’s invited. The format is simple: BYO vinyl, or choose from a huge selection on stage, share why you love them, or just listen to others’ stories. Discover songs you’ve never heard whilst re-discovering the soundtracks of your past – all played on a pure analogue sound system you may want to hug on your way out. From Kraut-Rock to K-pop, TISM to Tijuana Brass, The Vinyl Lounge is an informal, sometimes moving, and always surprising way to close the week, and jump-start the weekend.

The Bench Room cafe is open from 5.00 pm for drinks and snacks, with The Vinyl Lounge grooving from 5.30–7.00 pm.
