Weeknights and Weekends in Tamworth

Tamworth is well known for its country music festival, however we are so much more than golden guitars, sad songs and rhinestones!

Every night across the city you will find opportunities to unwind, or wind up… whatever your fancy!

Our pubs, clubs and bowlos host weekly raffles, trivia, comps, live music and DJ’s, plus we have a number of excellent wine and craft beer bars (and even a hidden, speakeasy-style cocktail bar), which all hold regular special events – the perfect opportunity to meet some of our very friendly locals!

We have a full calendar of events, with something fabulous happening either here in town or in one of our delightful surrounding towns or villages. Check out the below websites/socials and ideas to kick start your adventures.
