    NotesThe acoustic open mic at The Iron Horse runs every other Monday - hosted by local musician Tom Monks since 2014. This is a live music event, built on mutual support and creative freedom for acts of all sonically-suitable styles & abilities.

    The board does fill up quickly, so write your name on it before 7:45pm to secure a chance to play! We operate on a first-come first-serve basis on the night and it often gets busy - once they're gone they're gone!

    Each act gets 2 songs each (8-10 minutes max including setting up and packing down - a limit not a target!). Play what you like, keep the music rolling, support one another, be considerate, and make lifelong friends.

    A house guitar and full-sized stage piano are provided. If you can, please bring your own mic cover (or even better your own mic), and your electro-acoustic guitar or equally simple and sonically suitable instrument of choice.

    ⛔️ no backing tracks, drum kits, amps, keyboards (use our professional stage piano!), or any setup requiring time, space, or disruption ⛔️

    We are proud to have built up an atmosphere of positive, creative and fun musical vibes, with an ever-growing and incredibly supportive community that we'd love you to be involved in.

    Any questions on how it works, please feel free to get in touch, or initially come along as a spectator to find out for yourself!

    Nearest train station: Sidcup (directly opposite)
    Nearest bus routes: 51, 160, 229, 233, 269, 286, 492
    Free parking available behind the pub thru Greenwood Close via Hurst Road from 7pm - check the restrictions if you park anywhere else!

    ⚠️ If you're a standalone singer, we can offer live accompaniment of a 2000+ strong repertoire! But if you'd like to perform anything specific, please get in touch with Tom with plenty of notice and he'll learn what you fancy doing. As long as it's not Valerie, Hallelujah, Summertime, Mustang Sally or Sweet Caroline. ⚠️

    ⚠️ If you're a standalone instrumentalist who hopes to be paired up with someone, we're afraid this isn't that kind of event, sorry! BUT The Iron Horse does run a separate designated jam night, built on mixing and matching musicians in a full-band scenario, held on the 3rd Wednesday every month. ⚠️

    ⛔️ Do NOT attend if you, or anyone you've been in contact with, might be unwell, no matter how mild or how protected you are. You're not a "brave soldier" nor "sticking it to the man" by plunging innocent folk into isolation or worse. Wait til next time instead. Seriously. ⛔️
