The Thornbury Local has been an established staple on High Street for over 12 years. This venue sits in the heart of Thornbury and is renowned for being a great live music venue that provides free entertainment and is a gateway for many local legends into the music scene. The venue is welcoming to all (18+) and has a relaxed vibe that can bump up the beats and turn in to a dirty dance party on a late Friday and Saturday night. The cosy beer garden has a fireplace perfect for a winter escape, and plenty of greenery to get the summer fix. Plus the tram stops right in front of the venue from the 86 tram line, how easy is that?!
