Live music is BACK at Gosforth Civic Theatre! To cure the post-lockdown blues we are putting on gigs in our community garden.

Memphis Gerald is a new artist on the Americana/indie scene with a unique and sincere approach to Roots music. Born in Edinburgh, Memphis draws influences from the music and songwriting of Scotland’s Folk and Indie scenes whilst indulging his love for Country and Blues music. Memphis toured as a guitarist for many years before finding his voice as songwriter, so listeners can expect to hear nods to his history with subtle yet confident guitar work alongside an honest, thoughtful lyricism.

You can come down and see them in a safe, socially distanced environment by reserving a table for up to 6 people from no more than two different households. Our staff will serve you drinks to and from your table so can concentrate on enjoying this free gig and get used the 'the new normal'.
