Not quite in Manchester – 6 miles way in fact – but believe it or not the Witchwood is the regular stomping ground for all local manchester unsigned acts. More recently they’ve also earned themselves a place on national tour schedules – The home to The Chameleons reformation and pre-festival warm ups by the bigger name acts. 

A generous attitude to supporting local music make this venue worthy of your attention – In addition the venue is good – like a tidied up Roadhouse, but with a nicer stage, clearer sound and a  better spread of casual seating ! – These all add further credibility to this satellite venue.

If you visit, get a flyer with details of how to get on their mailing list – the Witchwood is one of the only venues to have a regular free newsletter.....and its now gone virtual !.
