Open Mic nights at the Sandpiper Inn
Ilfracombe has a vibrant music scene with many many talented musicians around and plenty of live music venues. One of the ways to get known if you are new in town or visiting is to go to one of the open mic nights that take place every week.
Or if you are already a local and you just want to try out some ideas that maybe are not quite ready for a full live gig this is a good way to gauge audience reactions.
The Sandpiper has open mic upstairs every Thursday evening from around 8.30 to 11.30 All are welcome, acoustic, or full band, drums and backline are all set up and if you ask very nicely you might even be able to borrow a guitar if you came on holiday without yours.
The Sandpiper also has occasional live bands as well.
