Music at the Drummer Boy

The Drummer Boy public house in Market Lavington, formerly called the New Inn, is no more, being one of several pubs in the village, which have now closed.

Known as The Drummer Boy from the 1970s, it was situated opposite St Mary’s Church. For more information on this establishment, see The Drummer Boy Pub.

At Market Lavington Museum, we have various items connected with this pub, including the Drummer Boy sign and an outside lantern. We have various paper artefacts too, including its curry menu (see Drummer Boy memories) and an advertisement for a Rock and Blues music event featuring Bob Smith (see A memory of the Drummer Boy).

There were concerns in the village about the suitability of this site for live music, as can be seen in our poster below.

Of course, all is quiet there now. The pub is no more and the buildings in the area are mostly residential, although the Old School opposite is let out for a variety of clubs and events.

Can you add anything to this or do you want to know more?
