During the day you'll usually find several street performers, offering a pleasant distraction from the bustling shoppers.

The choice of venues in the evening for live music is quite varied. You can check out the Cricketers if you fancy some acoustic performance, or you can check out Casey's, The Foundry, The Beercart Arms, or The Cherry Tree for some full band performances from some of the best amateur bands on the scene. There's such a variety of styles too, with Rock, Blues, Funk and Jazz just a sample of the genres you can expect to hear on your travels.

If you taste is more for an acoustic sound, Adrian Benn, Kiran Curpen, Dan Blood, and Alex Webber are all a great choice to keep you entertained throughout the night.

The Orange Street Music Club is also a great place to visit, offering different events each night, including live music of many different styles.
