About The Donkey

Venue Type: Pub & Live Music Venue

We are a LIVE MUSIC VENUE AND BAR!!!
The gaffers are Warren and Zoe who are very fortunate to work alongside Gaz Birtles (Beautiful South) and Drew Stansall (The Specials)

Together and with the help of a few other like minded souls we built up one of THE BEST LIVE MUSIC VENUES going right now!!!!

Since 2005, The Donkey has not only built a reputation as an intimate venue, with a live-wire atmosphere, but for presenting low-key gigs by major name acts. Drawn by appreciative audiences and great sound the 200 capacity Victorian room has played host to such great acts as: Fun Lovin Criminals, Alabama 3, The South, Jah Wobble, Ruts DC, Danny & the Champions of the World, Ian McNabb, Smoove & Turrell, The Dub Pistols, The Urban Voodoo Machine, Duke Special, Seth Lakeman, Michelle Shocked, James Hunter Six, Gaye Bykers On Acid, Pugwash, Vibronics, Raging Fyah, The Drop, Resonators, Mountain of Love, David Ford, The Cactus Blossoms, The Slackers, Raghu Dixit, Pete Molinari, John Power, Miles Hunt, Mark Morris, Martin Stephenson, Pete Williams, Fish, Toploader, Wreckless Eric, The High Llamas, Hank Wangford, Ferocious Dog, The Travelling Band, Benjamin Schoos, Sweet Billy Pilgrim, New Cool Collective, Los Pistoleros, Dawn Kinnard, Vijay Kishore, Hymn For Her, Dr. Robert, Rhoda Dakar, Roddy Radiation, Charlie Chuck, Tommy Womack, El Pussycat Ska, Kingsize, David Wyatt, The Kirkland Turn, Out Of Karma, Drugstore Cowboys, Goldwater, The Paradimes, Uncle Frank, By The Rivers, Yellowbelly

Both landlord Warren’s legendary bonhomie and promoter Gaz Birtles knowledge of the music business are evident in the care and love shown to all aspects of this independent establishment. It’s an approach that above anything else treats both musicians and customers alike as friends.

Located just outside of the Leicester city centre and close to both of the Universities, the Donkey also boasts a large beer garden and car park, free WiFi and offers a wide range of lagers, bottled beer, wine and real ales as well as fresh ground coffee daily.
