Hideaways is Chelmsford’s new Live music venue and has played a host to a plethora of artists from all walks of life including, Toploader, Republica, Johnny Wilson, The Artful Dodger, Leeroy Thornhill, Matt Cardles band Seven Summers and many top end Tribute acts and club nights. We also put on comedy nights and the venue can be used for private hire.

The venue opened in January 2019. Hideaways joined forces with The Chelmsford Social Club to save the building and for the love of live music. The events hall was turned into a music venue with a purpose built stage and fantastic sound and light system. We ripped everything out and turned it into a stage fit for any band. The sound is brilliant and the lighting show incredible.

The venue can hold 600 people standing and can also be transformed into a seated venue which comes complete with an in built, hard wired digital sound desk, FOH and monitoring Mackie system, outboard, Lighting rig and lightboard, backstage room, and the all important backstage toilet.

There are plenty of hotels nearby and our friends at The County Hotel are the guys to go to for touring acts needing to stay over for the night. Obviously there are plenty of food joints around on Bond street and the train station is only 10 mins walk away but we also have a brand new kitchen and can offer in-house catering.

The council have re-opened an old direct pathway that was so overgrown, so as you walk over the bridge from Bond Street you can turn left just after the footbridge and come around that way or ues the entrance through the Tesco car park. Be careful of the passing car park traffic. We also have our own car park that can accommodate free parking after 18:30 just off Springfield Rd. The entrance is shared with the Tesco delivery entrance just off of Springfield Road.

We are able to accommodate touring acts that will require their own desired sound and lighting rigs etc. We also have a hook up connection for touring buses and can accommodate overnight parking for artists.

For any disabled customers needing assistance or seats on any of our shows please contact us through the website and we will be happy to make your visit an enjoyable one
