Join us for our first live, indoor performance since March! Tickets Now on Sale.

Due to government restrictions on indoor performances, we have had to reschedule or postpone the majority of shows at The Stables since the end of March.  These restrictions have recently been eased and some venues around the UK are now beginning to re-open their doors for indoor performances once again... including ourselves - and we're delighted to be able to present this Sunday morning jazz concert by The Dime Notes on 13 September.

Please follow this link to read about the planning that has taken place to ensure we can provide a safe environment for all our customers, staff and artists.

We will be relocating this concert from the Mancini Forum (where it was originally scheduled to take place earlier this year in March) to the Jim Marshall Auditorium to ensure that audience groupings can be socially distanced.

We have a limited amount of seats available for the concert. For now, please just book the number of seats you require by following the booking link above.  You will be allocated specific seats in advance of the concert - we will be in contact with customers in the run-up to the concert with details of these, as well as further information regarding how the concert will run on the day.

For any enquiries, please email The Stables box office at

We look forward to welcoming you back to The Stables!

Introducing The Dime Notes – small band, huge swing!

The Dime Notes dig back into the blues-drenched sounds of clarinet-driven 1920’s New Orleans jazz, unearthing a repertoire of stomps, blueses and forgotten gems of the era from musicians such as Jelly Roll Morton, Johnny Dodds, and Red Nichols.

Fronted by Chris Barber’s long-time clarinetist David Horniblow, an established figure on the European jazz stage and American pianist/composer/musicologist and Jelly Roll Morton specialist Andrew Oliver, a recent arrival to the UK, the band is anchored by the unstoppable pulse of London’s knockout rhythm section, guitarist Dave Kelbie, accompanist in Evan Christopher’s Django a la Creole, John Etheridge’s Sweet Chorus, and bassist Louis Thomas, well known across the international scene for his swing and versatility and in demand across many genre boundaries with his huge sound and stylistic versatility. 

The Dime Notes present a fresh take on a timeless style, emphasising the propulsive grooves and sultry melodies which made early jazz revolutionary, controversial, and wildly popular.
