About Us


'You get a good range of people in Preston. The crowds are always ace, and the venue's sh*t hot. I really like 53 Degrees for its great sound' Jonny Brown, Twisted Wheel



53 Degrees is the £6.5 million building in the heart of Lancashire, boasting two separate venues: a 1500 capacity venue on the ground floor, along with a more intimate 400 capacity club upstairs. The venue's unique set up and versatility mean that 53 Degrees is the perfect place to catch up-and-coming bands and artists alongside more established names and seasoned pros. Each stage comes complete with state-of-the-art lighting, sound system and generous bar areas to ensure that whatever the event, your experience is the best in the North West.


Preston's home of diverse music, comedy and entertainment, 53 Degrees have attracted some of the biggest names in music and remain dedicated to seeking out exciting new bands on the cusp of breaking through. In the last year, Bastille, The Strypes, The 1975 and Jake Bugg have all played with us just as they were hitting the mainstream.


53 Degrees has hosted headline shows from some of the biggest acts in the business including The Courteeners, Johnny Marr, James Morrison, Enter Shikari, Reverend & The Makers, Orbital, The Streets, Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip, Everything Everything, Ellie Goulding, Chase And Status, Miles Kane, The Vaccines and Example to name but a few, as well as hilarious comedy from the likes of Russell Kane and Lee Nelson.


A venue that suits any live environment, from the ambient candlelit atmosphere of seated spoken word shows to huge clubnights and packed out standing-room-only gigs, 53 Degrees offers something for everyone, putting on shows that will appeal to all ages throughout Preston's diverse community. We are now making way for some of 2014's biggest acts, as well as some of the UK's best comedy.
