This delightfully eccentric and unique venue in Market Harborough is a long established jewel (or Joule) on the East Midlands live music scene, hugely popular with both audiences and musicians alike. With quality music, excellent food and a relaxing atmosphere, there is nowhere quite like Joules on a summer's day.

Sadly, early in 2017 it became clear that Joules was no longer viable as a regular music venue and our planned season had to be cancelled. However, the popular 3rd Thursday Harborough Acoustic Sessions are continuing (see panel below) and we will still bring you occasional weekend music events, details of which will be posted as they are booked.


will be a SUNDAY SESSION on 10th September, featuring NIGHTSHIFT - Mike Pruden and Chris Armson from top r&b band Mama Don't Allow play 50s/60s r&b and covers - plus of course resident BOB RENWICK.

Free admission. Open from 11am and music from noon till 3pm. Food and bar.


Now in its 18th year, the monthly Joules open mic night is generally recognised as one of the best in the region. Running every 3rd Thursday and starting at 8pm, all musicians are very welcome to take part, and if you’d like further details please contact Steve Rothero at s.rothero@ntlworld.com

Joules Yard can be found down the alley by the side of 53-55 High Street, Market Harborough, Leics. LE16 7AF

Top UK Celtic band Govannen are just one of many  superb acts who have performed at Joules.




A delightful new venue in the centre of Corby (it used to be the old library) the Arts Centre is primarily an art gallery with workshops, but following on from a successful music and poetry festival in early July, we have been invited to organise what we hope will become regular music events there. To this end we're starting with a new MONTHLY ACOUSTIC NIGHT, which will run on 1st Wednesdays of the month from this autumn onwards. Hosted by resident act KEV BUXTON, our first session will be on Wednesday 6th September when we'll have as our featured guests DOUGHBOY THREE and JACK LONDON, as well as special opening night sets from SWEET MOLLY and ZEITGEIST. There will also of course be open mic slots, though these may be a bit limited on the first night so do get there early if you'd like to play. It's a 7.30 start with free admission, and there will be a bar and food. We're hoping to make it one of the best acoustic nights in the area!    

The Rooftop Arts Centre is at Chisholm House, 9 Queens Square, Corby NN17 1PD, upstairs by Flowertime near the multi-storey car park.
