I have received and unconditional offer from Durham and will be starting in October! I just wondered what the closest music venue is? Would it be Newcastle?

Also is there anywhere in Durham city that have live music?

Any information would be helpful Thank you!!

Depends what kind of music you're into! Durham has a good variety of student music groups, so there are always concerts/ gigs on. A couple of the venues in town do live music quite often with local bands (such as Fabios that's really nice of an evening), and there are tons of orchestral/ classical/ jazz concerts. The Gala theatre also sometimes has music events on. If you're into alternative/rock music Fishtank bar in Durham also quite often has live music/ DJ sets.

However you will find a much bigger range in Newcastle! Lots of touring things come via Newcastle/ Sunderland, so there are really big names playing sometimes. There's also the O2 academy that do a range of gigs, The Sage and loads of smaller venues too, realistically stuff to suit anyone! It takes less than 15 mins on the train and there are late buses back at the weekends which are useful after concerts etc!
