Front Room banner

The Front Room is now in use after a year of re-development and a huge transformation in 2015, formally known as The Shuttle Bar then Oliver’s Bar and more recently the Press Room, The Front Room – aptly named as it’s development has been partially funded by the Mechanics at HOME project, aspires to create a home from home, an intimate and welcoming space to support our work to bring emerging artists, new theatre and niche performances to the Mechanics.

The Front Room is home to an exciting programme of events, supporting new and emerging artists, comedy and niche performances to a smaller audience in a more intimate performance space.

We’ve already brought you a whole host of events ranging from Folk artists like Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman and Steve Tilston through to blues rock three-pieces like Willie and the Bandits. We’ve even had you covered for comedy with Edinburgh Fringe festival’s favourite housewife Barbara Nice and hilariously funny, interactive comedy dinner shows  like Allo’ Allo’ and Fawlty Towers.

We’ve also been working with Culturapedia to bring you a selection of events chosen by the people of Burnley, for the people of Burnley. From an evening of chilled Latino vibes with Fiesta Latina to music and tales from the Swedish summer with Smorgasballad and a fantastic one man stage show about the life of great Welsh actor, Richard Burton.
