Comfy & Acoustic

"An eye for the hottest up-and-coming acts" - The Guardian

Every 1st and 3rd Friday of the month the bookshop is turned into a lamplit award-winning music venue, highlighting the best that the UK folk and acoustic scene has to offer.


Musicians travel from across the country to play to a captivated audience in the book-filled intimate space. 

With many shows selling out early it's advisable to prebook (plus it is a little cheaper!)


Since 2012 we've played host to over 100 acts.

Here are just some of the notable ones. 

Kathryn Williams, Tom McRae, Mark Morriss, Kitty Macfarlane, Emily Barker, Sam Kelly,

Boo Hewerdine, Josienne Clarke & Ben Walker, Jade Bird, Ferris & Sylvester, Hattie Briggs,

The Willows, Ben Savage & Hannah Sanders, Fred's House, Pete Fij & Terry Bickers,

Samantha Whates, Luke Jackson, Will Pound, Kirsty Merryn, The Adelaides, Rachel Sermanni,

Roxanne de Bastion, Michele Stodart

Blue Rose Code, Ed Prosek, Fiona Bevan
