Special Soulful Jazzy Cabaret Night…


Reserve a table with friends (or meet new ones there), enjoy a drink from the bar, and settle down for some top class entertainment ranging from the fabulous jazz band and stunning solo artists including Mairi Campbell (your host for the evening).

There’ll be time to talk and enjoy the atmosphere as well as being wowed (and sometimes surprised) by the acts …

If you’d like to reserve a table for your group , let us know by commenting on the Facebook event page  or if you can’t use Facebook you can email (with your name and the number of seats you require) and we’ll sort that for you.
