Opened in 2017, Strings Bar & Venue is a 300 capacity live music and performing arts venue situated in Newport, at the heart of the Isle of Wight, an iconic geographical location within popular music history. 

Founded and run by musicians for music lovers, Strings has established itself as the Island's premier live venue, hosting a wide variety of bands, DJ's and comedians. 

As well as programming a wealth of our own live shows, we love working with outside promoters and anyone who is as passionate about live music as we are. If this is you... please get in touch!

With a modern trendy decor, extensive bar menu and a great atmosphere, Strings really is the place to be for any music fan. 

Here at Strings, we are passionate about supporting local music and education.

We work very closely with Platform One College Of Music, providing a fantastic space for seminars, classes, workshops and live events.

"Strings is an amazing asset to the Isle of Wight. To have a professional music venue run by industry professionals on our doorstep is really important. It has benefitted students by giving them a sense of community, and somewhere where they can see credible live music. It is a privilege to be involved in such a positive business venture."  David Pontin - Education Director, Platform One
