A new bar which opened its doors in Weston last month is hosting live music starting tomorrow night.

The Orange Corner has replaced MuMu’s in Regent Street and is being run by James Willis-Boden, who is also the managing director at Bonds Wine Bar in Walliscote Road.

Live music nights will be held every other Thursday, starting this week with Littlemen, supported by local act Oli Boorman.

Organiser Rich Pegler of RP Promotions said: “These nights of acoustic-based live music have been designed to bring the best original artists from outside of the town to Weston for the first time.

“They will be supported by up and coming artists from the Weston area, with an emphasis on giving young talent a platform to showcase their skills. This is being done to add another flavour to the excellent live music scene in Weston.”

The nights will be free entry and run from 8pm until 11pm.
