During the Britpop era, Esquires gained a reputation for featuring bands that often broke into the music charts soon after their appearance. During this time the venue played host to the Bluetones, Elastica, Catatonia, Ocean Colour Scene, Echobelly, Shed Seven, Supergrass and Sleeper. As part of the 2019 'Independent Venue Week', Esquires hosted a live broadcast by Steve Lamacq on BBC Radio 6 Music featuring a live performance by Tim Burgess. In 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Esquires launched a successful crowdfunding exercise in order to keep the venue operating. Today Esquires features and promotes up-and-coming bands and artists touted by the publications such as the NME, and is a regular venue on the toilet circuit. It also plays host to a variety of local un-signed acts from Bedford and the surrounding area. (en)
