The gigs, like the cafe, are aimed at 13-25 year olds. The majority of our Gigs take place on the last Friday of the month. This does vary as we sometimes host the Battle Of The Bands and often put on other gig related events such as P150 Project, Open Mic Night and Club Nights.
There is a position available as Official Gig Photographer. Please email Matt for details. The picture above and the two below were taking by Robert Pressler.
There is a position available as Official Gig Reviewer. Please email Matt for details. We wont to be able to publish your reviews online so give us a bell if you are interested.
Please remember that when our gig capacity is reached we cannot sell any more tickets, so if you want to make sure you'll get in - get there early!

Plantation on Tour is exactly what you are thinking. Well... maybe. A team of Plantation youth workers head out with a TV, Wii, Table Football, Marquee and a whole load of soft drinks and we venture out to a veriaty of different events and locations and set up a miniture equivellent to the Plantation Cafe.
In 2011 we took part in Guildford Borough Councils Street Clash and a weekender in Stoughton, just outside of Guildford, called The Big Tent Event.
For the last 5 years Plantation has had the privilege of contributing to Guildford's live music festival.
Each year has been bigger and better than the last and it has been an honor to play host to bands such as Black Iris, The After Party, Kill Claudio, Fearless Vampire Killers and many more.
We have also had DJ's hosting club nights, young magicians performing ridiculous card tricks which will make your face melt, a full size (English) pool table, Table Football and a Nintendo Wii.
In 2010 we also had the opportunity to run a p150 style Praise and Worship evening with the help of our friends from Eternity Church.
