Retune hosts regular live music events at the South Mill Arts theatre in Bishop’s Stortford. These live shows offer a window into our world, enabling us to demonstrate the crucial link between creativity and mental wellbeing through songwriting, comedy, spoken word, visual art and other outlets.
Our events are free to attend, with audience members encouraged to donate what they can on the door (suggested minimum £10). We believe in putting on high quality shows, and artists are paid fairly.
Our Next Event
Retunesday usually takes place on the last Tuesday of each month, and is held in the auditorium at South Mill Arts. We offer performance opportunities to young emerging talent to open the night, followed by established local performers and nationally (sometimes internationally) acclaimed artists.
Retune In June
Once a year we gather for Retune In June, a one-day festival celebrating creativity in all its forms. Retune In June includes live music, comedy, yoga, workshops throughout the day and artisan food and drink, making use of the entire South Mill Arts complex. Our 2022 event includes Jack Cullen, The Retuners ft. Ed Drewett and Scarlet Thomas, Steve Bugeja, Juliette Burton, The Tom Braggins Trio and much more. It is a minimum £10 donation to attend the day, with an additional £10 to see Jack.
Retune works with local secondary schools to develop young talent, and is planning a number of future showcases with opportunities to perform for youngsters. Please send us an email if you are a GCSE or A-Level student with a passion for the stage.
Our charity also runs workshops in hospitals and prisons.
