While some may not be able to attend gigs, the Live Room has partnered up with Roots Live to live stream the gigs on their platform of online roots content. You can watch live or watch again via the Roots Live website, meaning you never have to miss a gig.

The venue is currently working a little differently. Due to social distancing each gig is now seated and has a capacity of 60. To stop people missing out The Live Room has booked double nights for most of their upcoming shows, giving you more opportunity to see the performers should you miss out on the first round of tickets. Some of the other changes include one-way systems and a pre-order drinks app as well as screens where necessary, and a limit on the number of people in any smaller areas. So you can go back to watch amazing acts perform with the peace of mind that you’re in as safe an environment as possible.
