On Wednesday 2nd September though they returned, with a new venue, the newly refurbished cafe at St James Concert Hall.

As venues go, for an informal but focussed night of music, it felt great with a small stage now added into the corner of the expanded space and panoramic vistas across St. Peter Port and the islands along with some great looking food (I didn’t eat this month but think I will next time).

Of course the focus though is the music (and in the case of tonight a few spoken word performances too) with the stage open for anyone to play a few songs entirely unplugged (almost) all compered by Gregory Harrison who did a highly entertaining job as he became clearly more ‘tired and emotional’ as the night went on following a busy few weeks working on the venue and then gigging with The Recks and solo at Vale Earth Fair while helping run the Magic Moustache Stage there too.

St James and Cooked at St James are now closed.

It is sad that we have to close our doors again, but we are convinced that the team at Public Health and the Guernsey spirit will get us through this as quickly as is possible.
Stay safe - see you all again soon!
