Cobo Bay Hotel Events
2014 JT Summer Balcony Gigs
Cobo Bay Hotel has been providing great entertainment to locals & visitors alike for over 25 years, with top local & UK bands, including some of the best tribute acts in the world, playing to over 2000 people from our first floor balcony.
These events have become a major part of Guernsey summers and bring a real carnival atmosphere to the Cobo seafront, whilst raising much needed funds for local charities such as the Guernsey Cheshire Home. Due to the popularity of these events, a section of the Cobo Coast Road at the front of the hotel is temporarily closed off.
The music usually starts from around 3pm, so book a table for lunch on The Beach Terrace and make a day of it or if you are a resident and would prefer a more peaceful afternoon then we will be more than happy to arrange any trips or excursions you may wish to enjoy.
