Talented local musicians looking for a venue to showcase their skills are being given the opportunity to shine at an Alnwick pub’s new acoustic night.

The acoustic evening will be a Saturday night staple at the Hog’s Head Inn, providing diners, drinkers and guests at the town’s biggest inn with some musical accompaniment to their evening out.

The Hog’s Head runs special entertainment events throughout the year.

And its Christmas evenings, in particular, are massively popular, even attracting North East comedy and music legend the late Brendan Healy.

However, the latest initiative is its first regular music spot.

The Hog’s Head general manager Gary Turner said: “Live music always adds to the atmosphere on a night out and we have a great venue here, with our large bar and dining area.

“Our first acoustic evening went down brilliantly and in the weeks ahead we’ll be booking some of the best local talent to perform at The Hog’s Head Inn.

“But this is also a fantastic opportunity to support great local musicians who are just starting out in live performance.

“If you think you’ve got what it takes to entertain us at the Hog’s Head, we’d love to hear from you.”

The Saturday acoustic nights will feature a mix of music styles, from instrumentalists to singers and small bands.

The new venture is all about creating a great ambience at the venue, where customers can relax and enjoy their drink or meal with some great music.

Gary added: “We’re hoping people who come in for a drink or a meal with us will stay to enjoy the music and extra vibe it adds to the great atmosphere at The Hog’s Head.”

The venue serves food from breakfast to 9pm every day.
