Live InDurham showcase to kick of the New Year in the City

Durham City will be filled with music thanks to an exciting Live InDurham event this January. We've organised an evening of free live entertainment at venues across the City for you all to enjoy.

Taking place on Thursday 19th January, the Live InDurham showcase will mark the start of 2017’s InDurham Weekends. The third weekend of the month will kick off with an exciting and vibrant night of live music, in celebration of the Arts and local talent in Durham City, giving local musicians and performers the chance to show off their musical talents.

The first Live InDurham evening of 2017 is not one to miss! Whatever your musical style, we'll have a variety of some of the best local talent on offer across three great venues in the heart of Durham City, so it’s perfect for an evening out with friends and family.

Between 6pm and 9pm, you can make the most of the live music at Head of Steam and Lounge Street Cafe & Bar, with the entertainment starting at the Starbucks at the Durham Marriott Hotel from 7pm until 10pm. Performances vary at the venues.

January’s line-up includes, Connor Thomas, Corey Spence, Jonathan Honor, The Regulars, Cara Pearson, Jordan Bailey, Tony Gowland, Antony Bennett, Elena Larkin and Buddha's Last T-Party.

This month, each venue will have a dedicated host too, with Connor Thomas compèring the event at Starbucks at the Durham Marriott Hotel, Corey Spence hosting at Lounge Street Cafe & Bar and Jonathan Payne at Head of Steam.

If you're popping into Durham City to be entertained by emerging musical talent on the 19th January, remember you can take advantage of late night opening at the same time. Launched in 2016, each and every Thursday Durham's fantastic range of shops, restaurants and attractions are open for longer.

Not only that, but Thursday 19th marks the first InDurham Weekend of 2017, where you can make the most of special offers and discounts with Fashion InDurham, and set menu deals with Dine InDurham - as always, there is something for everyone in the City.
