Welcome to the Acoustic Club at the Horn at the Half Moon Website. We’re here to provide an acoustic platform for musicians wanting to play in front of a live audience. We are happy to accommodate every level of player from a young player taking their first step in live performance to the seasoned professional.


All players will find an attentive audience, irrespective of the genre, in one of the best venues for live music.


We are a small venue with an capacity of about 50 but we have a full-size stage and a state-of-the-art amplification and sound system. Several visiting professional players have remarked that the sound achieved is equal to the best in many larger venues.


Such is the quality of our Sound Engineers they often get kidnapped to work on major tours headlined by household names.


Since reopening Post Covid the last 9 months have flown by so many thanks to everyone for helping to ease the Covid Blues and supporting us and keeping the Club viable.


With the current surge, we advise everyone to take Lateral Flow Test before attending. Keeping safe means everyone is safe.



There are a couple of ways to keep up to date. This website is one and for the very latest information we have our bi weekly Newsletter.

We try to accommodate all genres and a multitude of players but if you have seen a player or group you think we should hear please let us know.
