Glasshouse Acoustic Sessions are monthly live music events for new and established musicians and bands in the Peterborough area that play predominantly acoustic instruments.

The Sessions take place on selected Sunday afternoons between 2.00 and 5.30pm at Peterborough's Key Theatre, in the delightful 1st floor Riverside Bar area. They are easily accessible*, relaxed, family-friendly and free, and feature a wide range of music genres.

Fancy a bite to eat before a Session? Check out The Chalkboard , downstairs in the Key Theatre restaurant area.

* access to the Riverside Bar is via stairs or a lift; if you need to use the lift, we'd recommend calling the theatre on 01733 207239 beforehand, just in case it's not working.

Forthcoming Sessions in 2021

Glasshouse Acoustic Sessions are currently paused due to COVID-19.
We're hoping to restart in the second half of 2021, when it's safe for our artists and audience.
As soon as we can confirm some dates with the Key Theatre, we'll be contacting artists and assembling sessions.
In the meantime, stay safe everyone, as we want to welcome you ALL back when we reopen.
