“Just to say thank you for having us at St. Boswell’s Live. We really enjoyed the evening – a lovely audience.” – Gerda Stevenson
St Boswells Live! welcomes musicians of all kinds. Every night consists of a mix of experienced performers, keen amateurs and first-timers; so, it is guaranteed to be an enjoyable experience for both artists and audience alike.
If you would like to perform, or have been asked to perform, then please contact Keith, using the details below or the form at the bottom of the page:

The club is run as a non-profit venture by an open committee, dedicated to ensuring as many people in St Boswells and the surrounding areas enjoy the best music available. We are keen to nurture talent from the local area – we have a stage and we want people to use it. Any profits made go back into the club for buying equipment and investing in other community projects.
The Village Hall seats up to 120 people with our normal table and bring-your-own-bottle configuration, although we can go up to 240 if arranged in theatre style.
The Public Hall (a.k.a. Village Hall) is situated in the heart of St Boswells village, just off the A68 between Melrose and Jedburgh. For navigational purposes, it is at the beginning of Jenny Moore’s Road, postcode TD6 0AP. We sometimes need to use other venues, you will be notified if this is the case.
There aren’t any railways nearbye but if you are coming from afar then both Berwick-upon-Tweed and Edinburgh are on bus routes (the 67 and 52 respectively) both of which pass right outside St Boswells Village Hall. If you would like a lift from Berwick then we can arrange that.
Club nights start at 7.30pm, with soundchecks from 6pm. If you wish to arrive earlier and look around, then please let Keith know.
We currently have a 16-channel mixing desk and PA with front of house speakers, various stage monitors, DI boxes and a range of microphones for voice and instrumentation. If you have any special requirements then just let us know and we should be able to sort something out; alternatively you may bring along your own instrument amps, mics and accessories, but please tell us first.
St Boswells is a lovely village, which has the distinction of still having its own post office, as well as a chinese take-away, a chippy, a Co-operative store, a butcher, two hairdressers (you never know), and one of the best bookshops / coffee shops anywhere. We also have a huge village green and lots of trees, public footpaths and the River Tweed on our doorstep, if you need inspiration.
We look forward to your visit.
