NotesThe acoustic open mic at The Iron Horse runs every other Monday, built on pure no-nonsense creative freedom, mutual support and encouragement. We are proud to provide an ethos of positive and stress-free musical vibes, a place for artists to grow creatively (rather than hear Sweet Caroline and Valerie for the thousandth time), with an ever growing community of some fine performers and brilliant people in the area's finest music venue.

Twenty slots are allocated first-come first-serve on the night and they can get snapped up quickly, so write your name at the 7:45pm start to guarantee a chance to flourish on our stage! Hosted by Tom Monks, all styles and abilities are welcome as long as you're friendly, considerate, prepared, and supportive.

Each act gets, on average, 2 songs each (of a reasonable length!!) to do whatever you like, however you like, because you're brilliant. We welcome originals, covers, hits, rarities, and everything in between... just be yourself.

We have an electro-acoustic guitar and full-sized stage piano available to use - you can bring your preferred instrument bearing in mind it's an acoustic live music night with quick changeovers. Guitars, banjos, ukuleles, violins, basses, kalimbas, saxophones, trumpets, cajons..... as long as it's got a pluggy-in hole and is portable, bring it!

We don't do drum kits, amps, your own keyboards (especially theatre organs! they're massive) or any other excessive setups that could eat into another person's set just by setting up and packing down - or AUX cables due to the technical complications different devices and data plans bring, and as an acoustic night live performance is always encouraged. If you wish to use an original backing track that's sonically suitable for the event, you must email it to by 6pm of the event date so it can be played on the night.

We look forward to welcoming you and getting you involved! So come down at 7:45 every other Monday to support some fantastic artists amongst a brilliant community and venue that makes Sidcup proud! Any questions or requirements, feel free to get in touch with Tom and he'll be more than happy to help.
