There we were, sitting in Hove, lovers of music but too lazy to go out. So we thought 'why not use our newly-knocked-through front room to create an intimate space for musicians to perform?'. They can play their songs, sell their CDs and make a few quid - while we can bask in their reflected glory like the fame-whores we are. Mmmm...

So, we promise you:

  • an up-close-and-personal experience (it's big enough, but not that big)
  • some great singer-songwriter-instrumentalists
  • you'll get to see every slide and every hammer-on
  • and every penny of your donation will go to the performer

Coming Soon

What's Next?
Having dipped our toes back into the water with Sally Barker in December 2023 and then nabbed Show of Hands for a February gig before they 'retire', it's been a busy time here at Hove House Concert towers. And now we're delighted to have booked Hastings-based Charlie Austen for June 14th - details on this page. Next stop? Guests for concerts in the Autumn and Winter of this year, so do pop back from time to time. While we're waiting, here's a photo of the venue and some of our lovely audience. See you soon!

About Charlie Austen

Charlie is a one-woman band and tour-de-force, playing carefully crafted original songs on the folk-soul-rock spectrum, ready to take you on a lyrical journey to outer-space and back. Airy, yet powerful blues-infused vocals, intricate guitar parts and bare feet that keep the beat, courtesy of her unique suitcase drum-kit invention, Charlie featured nationally on BBC Radio 4, and you can catch her live on the UK festival circuit this year.

Charlie also features as a vocalist in cult blues-rock band Nine Below Zero, with whom she has toured extensively, and has been chosen for many high-profile gigs with her solo act. These include a European tour with Bryan Ferry, several UK tours with Squeeze-frontman and Ivor-Novello award winning songwriter Glenn Tilbrook, and a contribution to Cat Stevens’s online 'Catsong' festival, celebrating 50 years of 'Tea for the Tillerman'.
"...sparklingly original. Some of the songs seem so personal, so confessional, that I shudder to think what might have inspired them."

'Tickets' - £15.00

"Her star is ascending, and rightly so..."

"In a marvellously presented set, Charlie Austen joins the ranks of musicians who have been taken to the hearts of the Liverpool music lovers."
