About The Old Stables....
The Old Stables is an exciting acoustic music venue located in the stunning North Wiltshire town of Cricklade.
With a view to providing the highest possible quality performers and songwriters, the music is not limited to any particular genre. It may be blues, folk, classical, pop, country - the only limitation is that it will be (mainly!) acoustic and of superb quality!
It's small and intimate, and perfect for performers and the audience alike.
It has been set up by Chairman of the town’s annual festival, Nigel Wynne, and music business veteran, Seán Devine, with a view to bringing quality, original music to Cricklade.
The Old Stables is in an original stable block behind The White Hart Hotel on the High Street in Cricklade. Featuring bare Cotswold stone walls, wooden beams as well as original features such as ironwork from its use as a stable, the venue exudes character. It comfortably seats 60 and gives an extremely intimate musical experience.
To date, every show has been sold out - a mark of the venue's success. And here are some of the performers that have passed through our doors:
John Reilly, Lewis Nitikman, Michael Weston King, Edd Donovan, Charlie Dore, Me for Queen, John Bramwell (I am Kloot), Dave Fidler, My Darling Clementine, Sam Lewis, Nigel Stonier, Ben Glover, Boo Hewerdine, Vinny Peculiar, Blue Rose Code, Ben Cipolla, Winter Mountain, William the Conqueror, Worry Dolls, Findlay Napier, Richard Walters, Anna Pancaldi, Bloch Eyot and Tim Arnold.
