Great atmosphere, excellent venue for all types of artist - mega popular or upcoming. This isn't a venue for pub covers bands - it's a seriously good place for original artists to get great sound and ...an appreciative crowd. Oh, and it's directly opposite a train station, so you can sample the real ale all night long :) Perfect. See More

Excellent friendly staff, great atmosphere, great drinks, and live performances which are not to be missed! Amazing bands on stage with unrivalled sound engineering and a brilliant lighting setup to b...oot. Give me this place over a big arena any day. See More

Great place, great atmosphere, great people and great music. Well worth the regular 160 mile round trip. What's not to like?

Brilliant venue, spot on sound and great atmosphere. Certainly lives up to its reputation as one of the best small venues in the UK. Long may they keep on rockin'

Dear lovers of all things Witchy & former Railway Venue patrons & friends …
we've been trying to open a Witch themed, licensed teashop/cafe with a difference, in the Pendle (Lancashire) area.
We have now found the perfect property & location and we need some help.
We've tried crowd funding but it didn't reach anywhere near the amount we needed.
We're proposing the afore mentioned cafe with regular, acoustic guest spots from some of the biggest names in the world of Rock, Blu...es, World & Folk music.
It would be a unique & exciting venture & we've got the experience & contacts to make it a success - we just need someone to believe in us.
We have been running the Railway Venue in Bromley Cross, Bolton for the last six years & managed to turn what was a run down pub into one of Europe's most respected music venues.
Unfortunately, we were ruled by a Pub Company with no vision or understanding & did not re sign our lease with them.
If our idea appeals to you & you know of anyone that might be willing to bring it to fruition, please contact us via our Facebook page
( www.facebook.com/spiderwoodfarm ) or email spiderwoodfarm@outlook.com - thank you for taking the time to read this

Here it is, all too soon - our final week at The Railway.
It's been a long haul & it's been, in turn, exhilarating & knackering but hopefully we left a bit of a legacy that people will remember in the years to come.
Thank you so much to those that staunchly supported us & bollox to those that didn't (why - what was it ???)
We've made lifelong friends & we'll never lose touch.
Bless you....
Sleepy time... ZZzzzzzzz XxXxXxXxX
