About us

The Avenue is the largest independent music venue in the UK, with a capacity of 1800. We aim to introduce a live indie and rock and roll vibe to Chesterfield. As a venue,  we are revitalising the town’s nightlife and presenting local bands with the opportunity to display their talents to a huge audience. We’re kick starting a fresh approach to live music in the local area. Our vision is to attract big named artists to The Avenue to play alongside inspired performers.

Our venue

The Avenue venue really lives up to its name, with a street like theme throughout, including brick style walls, a telephone box and other features to bring the outside indoors.

If you’re looking for live music near you, you won’t find a venue quite like The Avenue. We have a huge capacity of 1800 meaning we attract bigger artists than smaller venues which can’t hold as many guests.

Located in Chesterfield town centre, we are easy to access by car (with a multi-story car park right next to us), bus and taxi. For guests travelling to us from surrounding areas, including Sheffield, Nottingham, Derby etc, we are just a short walk from the train station, so there’s no need to miss out!

What makes us stand out?

We opened The Avenue in Chesterfield with the aim of bringing something different and exciting to the town – with live music, a fully equipped bar, friendly staff and a great atmosphere.

We hope that by attracting local bands to our music venue, we can encourage new talent in the town as well as enable people from all around Derbyshire and the surrounding areas to witness the live bands and performers.

As the venue becomes more well-known and popular, we hope to attract more established and big-named artists to perform in order to attract more and more visitors, but we will always be keen to bring in local, up-coming talent. Since opening at the end of 2017, we have already introduced to our stage acts like Pat Sharpe and live band Bad Manners, as well as tribute acts including Who’s Next and The Clone Roses.
