FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS is a pop-up event from 5.30pm – 7.30pm before a Friday evening performance here at The Joan in one of our great lounges.

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!

If you like the idea of seeing more amazing artists for FREE on a Friday evening over a few drinks and a bit of delicious food, keep an eye out for our summer concert series Sips & Sounds starting up in December over at The Joan’s sister site Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest.
