What to expect at an Andover Music Club Concert


Concerts take place in the tiered auditorium of The Lights, Andover. Seats are unreserved, so concert goers choose their seat on arrival.

Access is available to all, but it would enhance your experience if those concert goers with special needs could contact Roland Treby by Email (or on 01264 359493) beforehand to discuss their specific requirements. An induction loop is also available, please enquire at the cloakroom.

There is no formal dress code and a free cloakroom is available for coats on those cooler or damp evenings.

The Lights Arena offers a full bar service as well as teas, coffees and ice cream for pre-concert and interval drinks, which can be ordered beforehand.

Programmes for the evening’s performance are also available in the foyer.

We hope you have an enjoyable experience at our concerts. Members of the committee are visible in the foyer prior to the concert and during the interval should you have any queries or questions.

There are plenty of public car parks in the area that are free in the evening as shown on the map opposite.


It is important to note that Lidl's Car Park should NOT be used. This car park is for their customers ONLY and is strictly enforced - even late in the evening.

Our concerts are planned to last two hours, including the interval and the Chairman’s “parish notices”, so we should normally expect to finish by 9:30 pm. But we can’t control how much our guests choose to speak about the music that they’re performing, so there may be occasions when we overrun.

There are plenty of parking spaces within 300 metres of The Lights. Most of them are open throughout the night and most of them are free between 4 pm and 8:30 am; but none of them are exclusively available to Music Club members, so you may not always find a space in your first choice of car park. In summary:

West Street Car Park (formerly the Magistrates Court car park): available again now the Leisure Centre re-build has completed. This is the 'P' with a red cross through on the map opposite!

 

Chantry Centre Multi-Storey: Over 300 spaces, free after 4 pm and remains open until 11:00pm.

Andover College Car Parks: 80 places in two parks, access from Charlton Road, open to the public after 5 pm. The signs at the entrance may say that they are closed, but the barriers are operated by a sensor. You will need £2 to leave, payable at the exit barrier (£1 or £2 coins), but these parks are conveniently close to The Lights.

Shepherd Spring Lane Car Park: This car park is now open all night and provides 70 places, free after 4 pm Access to/from The Lights is pedestrian/cycle/mobility scooter only; in your car you will need to approach from New Street.

Marlborough Street Car Park: 45 spaces at the western end of St Mary’s Church, free after 4 pm.

Simply Health Upper Car Park: 44 spaces, adjacent to Marlborough Street, free after 6 pm.

Leisure Centre Car Park: 38 spaces between Marlborough Street and The Lights, free after 4 pm.

Give yourselves plenty of time to locate a suitable parking space. If you arrive at The Lights after a concert has started you may be asked to wait until a break in the programme before you are allowed into the Auditorium.
