There’s a free barbecue every Sunday afternoon in summer; a somewhat scary dog lives on the roof, frightening the hell out of unsuspecting smokers; and an actual windmill stands in the adjacent park… 

The Windmill is certainly not your average music venue, but it’s been revelling in its rough-around-the-edges eccentricity for years, its unprepossessing exterior a cloak for its dedication to new leftfield music.

The programming is biased towards alt.country, alt.folk, alt.punk and alt.rock, but even if none of these is your alt.bag, it’s worth a visit just to pick up an ‘I Believe in Roof Dog’ T-shirt.
