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 (or sometimes in the ground floor restaurant). They are easily accessible*, relaxed, family-friendly and free. And air-conditioned!

* 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.

Fancy some food? Resist! Vegan Kitchen has just opened downstairs. Booking recommended!
