---The Church of Sound---

The Church of Sound is a mostly monthly, eclectic evening of
ambient/drone/experimental/electro-acoustic/improvised/noise/weird music, 
that takes place downstairs at Lee Rosy's Tea Shop in Nottingham. 

It is mostly on the third Thursday of the month, except when it isn't, 
and it's usually on every month except August and December.

Audients assemble for sonic worship at the altar of the Church of Sound downstairs 
and performances are accompanied by visuals, usually provided by the performers.
Admission is £4 on the door, and performances start around 7:30pm.

Lee Rosy's tea shop is at 17 Broad Street, Hockley, NG1 3AJ Nottingham, United Kingdom.
Anyone driving to the venue should be aware that there are bus/tram lane cameras in the vicinity.
Parking on Brook Street and walking to the venue avoids the one-way system and bus gates.
