Welcome to the website for


the longest-running live music venue in Leicester.

Situated in the heart of Leicester, The Shed opened in 1994 and since then has seen bands and artists from all over the world take to its stages.

Noted for being one of the incubator venues for new bands and acts, The Shed has seen many new bands perform for the first time at its gigs – bands that have gone on to become established on the Midlands and UK music scene.

The Shed has become an iconic venue and showcase for bands from all over Leicester, Leicestershire and the East Midlands as well as from all parts of the UK and Europe.

Every genre of music is played at The Shed:  rock, metal, ska, punk, indie, pop, hardcore and more.  On our stages you can hear both original and covers and tribute bands, solo artists, rappers, singers, acoustics and even sometimes comedians and dancers.

THE SHED is one of the great musical and cultural assets of Leicester.
