ABOUT The Thornbury Local
Live Music Venues

The Thornbury Local has been an established staple on High Street for over 12 years. The venue is considered home to many residents in the area and focuses on being a committed live music venue that supports many local and travelling musicians. There is something going on at The Local almost every day of the week. This venue prides itself on providing free entertainment and always bringing the vibe!

Tuesdays: Featuring some of their favourite local legends (Kat & Gordo) running a crude and wacky trivia night. It starts every week from 8pm, free entry with weird prizes and beer jugs to be won. It’s interactive and doesn’t take itself to seriously. Definitely a night of fun and silliness.

Wednesdays: The bar has a renowned OPEN MIC night that gets packed out every week. Amazing local talents impress every Wednesday – with a great mix of committed locals and new faces. This is a night not to be missed!

Fridays & Saturdays: Every weekend is packed with free live music events and DJs that you will want to dance your butt off to until the wee hours of the morning. Great night vibes, delicious food and fantastic cocktails. The Local is a great place to listen to some amazing bands and hear some banging DJ sets.

Sundays: The perfect day to listen to some relaxing music over a glass of mulled wine or a refreshing beer. Free live music every Sunday from 5pm – 7pm. Always soulful, calming music perfect for a Sunday arvo. Plus vinyl open decks happens from 8pm where anyone is free to bring their own vinyl and play a set.
