THE VENUES

Most venues are in Swanage High Street.  

Starting from the pier, the first venue is Bar Seven (1 High St), White Horse (11), Purbeck Pub (19), Ship Inn (23a), White Swan (The Square), Anchor Inn (30), Red Lion (63), Moonlight Bistro (67) and the Black Swan (159).

The Crow’s Nest is 11 Ulwell Rd – from the town centre, along Shore Road and bear left up the hill. From the Crow’s Nest, over the road into Burlington Rd for the Grand Hotel.

Swanage Railway Station is in the centre of town. The Bankes Arms Hotel is in East Street, Corfe Castle - Swanage Railway runs there, but check train times carefully.

Gigs at the Bankes Arms Hotel, Corfe Castle on Saturday and Sunday afternoons are from 2pm - 5pm so you can get the last trains back to Norden and Swanage. We don't want you stranded at Corfe Castle station - you might end up writing yet another song about being stuck at a railway station!
