The Anchor is one of the Isle of Wight’s premier live music venues showcasing a vast array of musical talent from some of the island’s most talented individuals.
We have live music every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday night throughout the year from funk, jazz, blues and rock at weekends to more chilled out acoustic sounds during the week.

There's a huge range of music on offer with something to suit all musical tastes. As one of the island’s most popular and well established venues we are always seeking new talent and different sounds to keep up with the extensive diversity of the local music scene.
