Independent music, art, food & drink in the heart of Middlesbrough’s historic quarter.

Housed in a Grade II listed Victorian post office in Exchange Square, we’re a grassroots venue owned & run by promoters Ten Feet Tall.

Our programme includes live music, indie cinema, markets, exhibitions, workshops, club nights, spoken word events, fitness classes, festivals, dance, pub theatre & creative industry network events. We are home to the Ali Brownlee Social Club – a family and away fan friendly pre-match meet up before every home game.  We host regular pop up exhibitions with the Boro Shirt Museum and many other cultural football events.  Our Queer Base programme includes Queer Creative Writing and Book Clubs.

We have a fully equipped band rehearsal space Sidecar Studios open 7 days a week.

Our vegan and veggie kitchen is currently closed during the week while Exchange Square undergoes an extensive refurb but we are still serving food at events and we also host pop up kitchen takeovers by some of the region’s most exciting food providers.
