The Met Lounge in Peterborough city centre has headed into lockdown after three sell-out socially distanced shows last weekend - a sharp reminder of the love for live music in the city.

The Bridge Street venue has moved quickly to reschedule the November 14 gig featuring local soul band The Contacts to January 16 and club owner Steve Jason is currently looking for a replacement date for Mark Morriss’ November 27 gig.

The same applies to the following night’s spoken word show - a special ‘socially distanced ‘SLAM’.

Next up then on December 4 is a special acoustic Oasis & Noel Gallagher tribute show performed by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Carpets. And on December 5th, there is a John Lennon tribute show.

Meanwhile the club is looking to widen its musical offering.

The Met, like all music venues closed during the Spring lockdown, was fortunate enough to receive a Culture Recovery Fund grand.

Steve said: “As part of our agreement with Arts Council England (which dealt with grant applications) we want to increase the genres of music we present here at The Met - Folk ( or C&W /American ) being one of them.

“If you think you have the handle on the genre and the bands to book to encourage people out of their houses then please feel free to send a message or email [email protected] with your ideas.”
