Live music

Live music has always been the beating heart of The Bedford.

As James Morrison says: ‘Go because it’s awesome and you never know you could be standing next to the next rising star’.

Our passion for promoting and nurturing the stars of the future is unrivalled and we are proud to have given a stage to the likes of Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, London Grammar, James Morrison, Jorja Smith and George Ezra to name but a few.

Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night, from 8pm, we showcase the UK’s finest musical talent in our iconic Club Room. Better yet it’s all absolutely free. (In order to comply with all the latest guidelines, gigs are now ticketed, although free. Please do purchase in advance.) We also host special musical events at other times, so please do just check our events calendar.

“I loved playing The Bedford in Balham – It holds fond memories for me and I look forward to coming back one day”
Ed Sheeran 

“The Bedford believed in me, gave me a stage to be seen and a platform to be heard.  I loved those days – we had fun!!!!”
Paolo Nutini

“As a music venue it is out of this world — as this exquisitely proportioned space….… becomes this Aladdin’s Cave, a veritable treasure trove of talent.”
