The home of Acoustic Music in Somerset
The Ritz Acoustic Club is all about providing a stage for anyone to come along and perform in front of a live audience (normally quite forgiving too).
The club runs a first come first served basis and we recommend you arrive early if you wish to guarantee a spot (two songs per slot). We provide all the equipment you should need and we will also mix the sound for you.
It should be worth mentioning at this point that the quality and experience of the players varies dramatically and first timers are encouraged. The club is a music club and to that end we ask people to be considerate to the players when they are on stage, however there is a bar and it’s not a library, common sense should apply. Please note that when an artist is performing, we ask that you do not walk across the front of the stage.
We look forward to seeing you in the very near future.
If you plan your first visit to the club and can’t get to the club early, contact us in advance and we will do everything possible to reserve you a slot on this first visit.
We run three sets, the first starting usually at about 8.30 - 9.10 pm, the second 9.20-10.10 pm and the third 10.20-11.00 pm.
Also look out for Our Special Guest/Showcase Nights which are held every third Thursday of the month. Only 1 open-mic set 8.30 - 9.40 pm on showcase nights followed by the guest act at 10 pm - 11.10 pm. Click here for details of forthcoming showcase guests and here for a list of our past guests.
We also run a theme night on the 1st Thursday of the month. It is not compulsory for you to follow the theme, but some are a challenge. Details of the next theme night on the top right of this page or you can download a list of future theme nights on our downloads page
