FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS is a pop-up event from 5.30 – 7.30pm on Friday evenings throughout May and June in The Joan’s beautiful Borland Lounge.

Think tempting cocktails, fabulous-and-filling finger food and a cosy atmosphere with plenty of comfy nooks. A perfect way to wind down from the week before enjoying a show.

Local singer-songwriters and musicians will be performing at each FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS bringing you an eclectic range of styles from funky soul and blues to prog-rock-tronica, smooth tunes, folk and acoustic pop. For more details and performer announcements check this website closer to each night. We’d love to see you there!
