Our Gig List for the coming days/weeks/months is shown below. All the dates are subject to change, and if you are traveling a long way we advise you to phone and confirm. If you want to book tickets please phone us on 01792 473276 (rather than sending me an email). Please don't phone between 12 and 2pm as it's lunchtime and we're likely to be too busy cooking to staff the Box Office as well! We aren't open in the evenings unless we've got music on (or lasagne to make) so ring in the daytime (there's someone there from 8:30am-6pm, usually).


Doors usually open at 7:30pm, with support acts starting at 8:30pm. We don't reserve tables so if you intend sitting down to eat, be early. The kitchen stays open until about 9 or when the main act starts. We try and stick to what's advertised but musicians will be musicians!

Sat 25th Oct

Do Not Go Gentle Festival featuring Climbing Trees, Richard James and Gareth Bonello

Climbing Trees were my surprise find of the festival when they last played here. Very pleased to welcome them back for a headliner. A little bit Mumford, a lot of lush harmonies - with a bluesy edge to stop it all getting too sickly. RECOMMENDED!

Richard James - formerly of West Walian psyche-heads Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci -has quietly recorded a series of mellifluous pastoral music. His latest, Pictures in the Morning, is his best yet, not least for the stunning ten-minute raga that’s equal parts Rhossili and Rishikesh. Plus Gareth Bonello from The Gentle Good!!

Alt.country:- teenage angst for middle aged people

If you're a band/artist or promoter email me at thechattery@hotmail.com. Please bear in mind that we have a LOT of demos, albums and emails sent to us and it takes us a while to get through them. Please also note that we are a small restaurant with a musical interest in the singer-songwriter/americana/alt.country/etc. If you play punk, nu-punk, post punk, hardcore, emo, screamo, grindcore, hip hop, breakbeat, drum'n'bass etc. your email will most likely be ignored and demo binned. We also have no interest in acts who list dancing above singing in their biographies and rely on backing tracks. Not sure whether to email me? Count the number of Dylan albums you can name, if it's less than 10 don't bother :-) .

Not sure whether to come and see a show in The Chattery? You can read a selection of nice things people have said about us here.

A brief history of live music at The Chattery can be found here. Including
some of the gigs you might've missed!
