Live Music in Sudbury

Is live music dying? Not in Suffolk, it isn't. There are numerous pubs featuring live music every week, catering for rock, acoustic and folk. In fact Sudbury is almost the Hay on Wye for music. If you are visiting the area and like live music, we hope you find this page useful.  If you like live music and don't have any at home, come and visit us anyway, it's a great place for a holiday (see entries on the left). Audiences from 18 to over 60 are catered for. The excellent magazine Grapevine (see gives a pretty full listing of all gigs in East Anglia and is available in most of the venues listed below.

Music is usually available in the following bars.  They vary in character, so if one isn't to your taste another one probably will be.  The entry "rock" includes music from the 60s through to the 90s.
