What's Music at The Northcourt all About?
We are a not for profit music venue with live bands of many types and styles appearing at our venue The Northcourt which is located on the corner of Oxford Road and Northcourt Road in Abingdon. Our gigs will normally be held on a Friday or Saturday nights.
Abingdon long lacked a good, high quality music venue in the local area and we've set out to attract bands to come and play here. Our objective is to provide a great environment for the band to play in and for the audience to enjoy them in. All acts that appear at The Northcourt will be genuine musicians playing instruments and not just singers with backing tapes. Part of our ethos is to encourage the performance of live music and the development of musicians and their talents. We will always try to provide support slots to promote original local or regional artists who deserve more recognition.
Our main venue room is fully licensed and can hold up to 200 persons there is also a lounge bar to relax and enjoy a few drinks and a chat before or after the gigs. There is ample parking at our facility and in a carpark situated adjacent to our location. The Northcourt was set up and actually physically built by local people here in Abingdon. It has always been intended to sit at the heart of the local community and we are determined that it shall continue to provide the facilities, activities and events that the area needs or lacks.
We will be delighted to welcome music fans to any and all of our events no matter where you come from near or far and you will be guaranteed a good night's entertainment here at The Northcourt. And...we can promise you we will never charge you a booking fee on your tickets if you come in and buy at the venue itself.
Why not subscribe to our mailing list and we will keep you up to date about all the live music events we will be holding. We promise NEVER to pass your email on to third parties and will only ever use it to send occasional mails out announcing new bands playing at The Northcourt & news about us and the venue.
Please note that though we do provide limited seating this is on a first come first served basis and ticket purchase does not entitle the holder to seating since The Northcourt is considered an all standing venue.
The Northcourt is also home to Abingdon United FC and Abingdon United Woman's FC.
