The Lounge Society are heading to Widnes Library on Sunday 27 June for a special, socially-distanced matinee gig, in collaboration with Get it Loud in Libraries.

Hailing from the West Yorkshire musical hot-spot of Hebden Bridge, The Lounge Society are a teenage quartet, birthed out of the same ‘Calder sound’ that has given the world The Orielles and WH Lung among others.

They are described as a “impulsive, energetic punk band”.

Audiences across the UK are discovering libraries as unique venues that give people of all ages the chance to get close to emerging artists thanks to Get It Loud In Libraries, with past gigs including Adele, Florence + The Machine and Clean Bandit. Get It Loud In Libraries provides music provision to areas missed on major tours and exists to make libraries meaningful, useful and enjoyable for young people who haven’t visited in years, if at all.  

The upcoming Lounge Society socially distanced gig at Widnes Library is a unique opportunity to see an emerging artist in an intimate venue that’s right on your doorstep. Support is from Julia Bardo.

Doors open 2:30pm. Tickets are £7.50 from

The show is part of the Celebrate Halton – Borough of Culture 2021 celebrations. For all the latest information and to purchase tickets for events visit:
