welcome to the old fire station
The Old Fire Station in Carlisle is a family run business which has firmly established itself as one of the best venues for music, comedy and art in the city. This converted fire station which has played host to the likes of Lindisfarne and Big Country, continues to host world-class touring bands whilst developing the grass-roots local music scene and supporting upcoming talent.
Some of the biggest names in comedy have performed here and we are proud to say that our 2022 programme already includes a hothouse of talent including ‘The Worlds Best Comedy Club’, The Comedy Store.
Along with an art gallery, The Old Fire Station also has other spaces which are perfect for private and corporate events.
Our aim is to create an arts & entertainment hub, offering something for everyone and where everyone feels welcome.
