Live Music at Beese's

Come along every Friday evening for some of the best local talent performing live at Beese's!

You may be aware, we like music here at Beese's and having introduced live bands every Friday in 2017 and 2018, we have been hard at work to produce another vibrant and exciting lineup for 2019. Despite this, entry to see them at Beese's will remain free.


Bristol Ferry Boats and No. 7 boat trips will be running the regular Friday night trip from Welsh Back to Beese's in 2019. The ticket price includes your journey to Beese's and a meal when you get here (The ferry companies can't make every Friday as the tide is sometimes too high, however there will still be a live band - check their website for available trips). 

We have live music every Friday, and we're delighted to announce that the lineup is confirmed and can be viewed below - there are definitely some dates to be putting in your calendar!
