Live music is what The Railway Venue is all about but even when there isn’t a band playing it’s still a great place to chill.

The Railway is directly opposite Bromley Cross Train Station, which is very handy as it shunts passengers to and from Manchester Victoria, Clitheroe, Bolton town centre, Blackburn & Darwen! Get on the train and step off straight into The Railway. All aboard!

Beck Sian (cousin of Kate Bush) said, after her show here: “We had such a lovely gig, with the best stage set-up, lighting and pa, and sound engineering (by Jon Hanson) that anyone could ask for. Thanks so much to the lovely Jon and Hilary for looking after us and making us so welcome, and to everyone who came to support us.”
