Live Music Events

We Are Now A Music Venue Property

The Snug is now proudly owned by Music Venue Properties as part of their ‘Own Our Venues’ initiative. This means The Snug’s future as a music venue is secure!

“The Snug being purchased by Music Venue Properties means everything to me, my team and our community, as it allows us to continue to provide this very important space to up-and-coming artists for many years to come. We now feel secure and confident to plan ahead knowing the venue is in safe hands with people that have a shared vision of the future of new music. To be the first of many serves as a light of hope that the preservation of grassroots music venues can be done when people pull together to make things happen, and The Snug can keep showcasing the cultural life within our community.”

Rachael Flaszczak, Managing Director of The Snug.

We Do Things Differently

Our customers are dedicated and actively contribute to our success. 

As music lovers ourselves, we noticed that the Atherton music market was bleak.  

We have now tapped into that market. This has meant The Snug has developed an exceptional social media following with an extremely engaged and enthusiastic audience.

“The Snug is truly unique in every way and an absolute pleasure to play live . Nothing was too much trouble for their amazingly talented sound and live video/photography Team . They really have thought of everything to create the best live experience possible for up and coming Bands with an outstanding sound, lighting and video system. Even during lockdown, this is one of the few venues that remained committed to supporting bands with their brilliantly produced Snug Live Sessions which ‘Lucigenic’ were fortunate enough to play . The Snug is a blueprint of what a great Music Venue should look, sound and feel like, run by music lovers , for music lovers, cannot wait to play there again….”
