The Talking Heads has a legacy of being the South’s most eclectic live music venue. There’s live entertainment every night of the week, including regular Jazz, Irish-Folk, Singer-Songwriter Sessions and Open Mics. With two bars and two performance spaces, The Talking Heads is a regular stop-off for local, national and international bands alike. 

The multi-functional space is also ideal for parties, cabaret and corporate events, and all enquiries into venue hire are welcome. Find our venue spec at this link:
