“Stage 2 (80 people max) - excellent music and food”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Went to see Stephanie O'Brien (as an aside, if you can get to see her do it, she is great). It was our wedding anniversary and another event planned had been cancelled, so at short notice tried The Stables to see what was on and checked out Stephanie's website, sounded good so went along. Also discovered that in Stage 2 is the café which serves really good freshly cooked food until shortly before they have to set up the room for the evening entertainment, so booked a table for there and really enjoyed the reasonably priced and good quality food. We popped outiside to the main bar whilst the room was then set up in cabaret style with tables of 4 for people to sit at. A great place to hear exciting new talent. The whole Stables experience is one you should try if you find an artist you fancy hearing then go, you won't be disappointed and the staff (mostly more senior aged volunteers) are the most pleasant you will ever encounter at a gig!!!

“Wonderful jazz concerts in an idyllic setting”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

We visited The Stables at Wavendon for a concert held in the garden of the Old Rectory next door to The Stables - "Cleo Laine and Friends". This is one of a series of mainly jazz concerts taking place during June/July 2014 on Saturdays and Sundays," Music in the Garden". The garden provides a wonderful, relaxed setting, manned by heroic and charming volunteers, who couldn't be more helpful. There is an undercover area in front of the stage, or, if the weather is good, you can bring a picnic and sit in the garden. Cream teas are on sale, and there is a selection of second-hand stalls, with many rare vinyl records for anyone interested. Dame Cleo Laine gave a tremendous performance, backed by superb musicians. For anyone interested in jazz, this is a lovely summer day out. Free parking is available, and there is an entrance fee (varies from concert to concert), tickets better booked in advance through The Stables box office.
