Snake Oil’ is immersive live music. Total freedom to explore six iconic music styles across a huge maze of beautifully designed settings. 

Alongside the neons of Rock ‘n’ Roll, the languid luxury of the jazz club, or the dusty shack where a lone bluesman plays, enjoy themed food and drink at your own leisure. 

We can welcome you between 7 and 7.45pm and from then you can explore the live music however you like. The bars shut at 11pm and the venue closes at midnight.

Dress up. Cut loose. Come to where the music was born.

The venue and event were designed in 2020 with the pandemic in mind. We are capable of implementing social distancing, masks, hand sanitiser, timed entries, and reduced capacities. We are operating - aren’t we all - in the hope that by late September these things won’t be necessary, but:
Masks work
Space works
Hygiene works.

You know how to keep safe by now. We know how to keep you safe. We’ll do everything we can, and we hope you will too.

We are taking card payments only and encourage contactless payments when possible.
