We have opened our doors to legends and local talent alike, offering a wide array of programmes ranging from writing to music production.

Live Music

Since it was founded in 1990, Nerve Centre has built a reputation as a hub for live music and music development with a focus to provide opportunities for young local musicians and creatives to hone their skills, perform at a professional level and get ready to take the world by storm.

We have since evolved into a multi-functional 550-capacity music venue and lounge where legendary acts such as The Undertones, Sinead O’Connor, David Gray, The Darkness, Christy Moore, Sepultura, Steve Vai, and Kasabian have graced the stage.

See our What's On section for all upcoming live music.
