Hitting All The Right Notes – Checking out the venues for live music in Harrow

Our borough has been the springboard for many bands and artists including The Who, George Michael and Simon Le Bon and, in 2024, there are some pretty great venues for those looking for a great gig without the hassle and expense of a big-name concert. In this article we’re keeping it local and checking out the venues for live music in Harrow.

Trinity Bar

The starting point for international superstar and Harrow girl, Kate Nash, the Trinity Bar sits on the corner of Station Road – a riot of color that you can’t miss – and is one of Harrow’s primary music venues. Launched in 1992 by Shaun Eyles and Martin Blake, the Trinity Bar hosts live bands and musicians most weekends as well as a DJ.

Forthcoming attractions include:

  • 14th March – Indie Choir
  • 15th March – Shake Some Action Present Nosebleed
  • Every Friday night – DJ RY Friday Night Party

Herga At The Castle

Established in 1981 (although the site has been used as taverns since the 1700s), The Castle on Harrow on the Hill is a local stalwart and is known for its real ales, great food and weekly events such as French Night and Steak Night. On Monday evenings, The Castle is also home to the Herga At The Castle Folk And Acoustic Club. Starting at 7.45pm, the event is usually a casual sing-along type affair, however, The Castle does feature guest artist evenings which incur a charge – and these scheduled events are as follows:

  • Monday 1 April – Guest Evening – Martyn Wyndham Read and Iris Bishop – entry £12
  • Monday 29th April – Guest Evening – Craig Joiner – entry £10
  • Monday 3rd June – Guest Evening – Odette Mitchell – entry £10
  • Monday 1st July – Guest Evening – Jim Mageean and Graeme Knights – entry £12
  • Monday 22 July – Guest Evening – Chris and Steve Wilson – entry £12

McCafferty’s Bar

If a good old-fashioned Irish shindig is more your scene, you may want to bookmark McCafferty’s Bar on Pinner Road. This traditional Irish pub offers live music and DJs until late on Friday and Saturday nights as well as their extremely popular ‘Bible Sundays’. The pub also offers a wide range of drinks but does not serve food – so you may want to hit McDonald’s beforehand.

The Three Wishes

One of Edgware’s largest pubs, The Three Wishes is quite literally rocking at weekends with bands, DJs and karaoke until late.

Upcoming events include:

  • Friday 15th March – Mickey Rose Karaoke
  • Saturday 16th March – Billy Heneghan
  • Saturday 23rd March – The Fabulous Tall Feathers Admission is free for all live music and karaoke events at The Three Wishes.
