Welcome to the Acoustic Music Society!
We’re all about producing great music here and having as much fun as possible while we’re doing it! If you’re a musician or a singer looking to make a name for yourself at university, this is a fantastic platform! If you’re looking forward to collaborating on music projects with others, we do this every single week with our society. If you’re interested in music and just want to meet great people and have a laugh, join us for socials and nights out.
Come along to any of our 3 weekly meets: on Tuesdays, we meet in the lobby of the Ellen Terry building at 7pm then split into teaching and group jam sessions. On Wednesdays at 9pm, we head down The Yard for an open mic social and on Saturdays we're back at Ivy House from 5pm entertaining, jamming and performing to our heart's content!
Also, check out our Instagram and Facebook pages for any upcoming special events! Most recently, we ran a TaskMaster special in refreshers week - more like this could be coming soon...
Whatever you're into, there's a place for you at the Acoustic Music Society.

Hope to see you soon!
