Autumn 2016


We’ll be announcing the full lineup over the next few days, but in the meantime here are the details of our first 2 shows of this year’s lineup.

Jarred Christmas, Colum Tyrrell and Colin Murphy


Lou Sanders, Steve Bennett and Colin Murphy


We’ve also made some changes to this year’s setup. First and foremost, we have a new start time. The club’s doors now open at 8pm and the show kicks off at 8.30pm. We will now also be selling our tickets via an online app and website called GLISTRR. They charge substantially less in booking fees, but remember the cheapest place to buy tickets for our shows, is always directly from Queen’s Students’ Union!
