Event details: The Living Room is, according to NME, the premier acoustic night in Cambridge. The event takes place fortnightly and both bands and singer/songwriters are invited to perform their work in acoustic format. This gives the audience a chance to hear acts perform their songs in a way perhaps not usually heard, although for many artists it is how the songs were originally written... perhaps even in their own living room!

The Living Room is hosted by Lord Bridge in his own living room, where the audience sit among like-minded people listening to wonderful music the way nature intended.

See the website for details of performers:
Doors open at 8:30pm. Entry is £4 or £3 for 209Radio members. Tickets can be purchased in advance from

Arrive fashionably on-time to avoid disappointment. Please be aware that the audience sit on soft furnishings on the floor but some chairs will be available on a first come first served basis.

The Living Room now has its own compilation CD (The Living Room Live) featuring live songs played at the night. The CD is available to buy at the venue, at other selected shops in Cambridge and on iTunes.

The Living Room has now featured on the UK festival scene and we have taken it, and some of the best acts we have booked for the Cambridge venue, to places such as The Secret Garden Festival, Blissfields (in 2008), Grass Roots, Strawberry Fair and more. The Living Room stage has also featured at the UK Festival Awards.

Hope Street Music is a not-for-profit organisation designed to support local music. All profits are put back into local music projects.

To compliment the Living Room acoustic night we produce and host The Living Room radio show each Monday from 7.00 to 8.00pm. If you are in Cambridge you can listen on 105FM and for the rest of the world listen online at

We are looking for performers to come onto the show for interviews, features and live performance. Please message us if you are interested. Ideally it should tie in with a performance you have in Cambridge or the surrounding area at the time of broadcast.
