COVID 19 Update

We are listing gigs, as they were before the lockdown, for the purpose of getting this website 'live'. Therefore you will not be able to buy tickets at this time, until the social distancing rules have been relaxed.

Jazz Sessions

During the COVID19 lockdown, Stray’s house band P.R.S. have put some tunes together, recorded in their respective homes, edited, mixed and uploaded for your enjoyment. Originally, these were going to be live streamed from alternate shops but then the lockdown kicked in! Hopefully this will ease the pain for the Stray’s Jazz followers until we see you again at the Friday Sessions…


Mat, Steve and Si

Friday Night Jazz at Stray’s is a laid back but full-on jazz event. Doors open at 7:00pm, with music from 8:00pm. Tickets are £7 each / £10 on the door*

Our Friday Night Menu is available from 7:00pm, plus we have a nice range of bottled wines, beers, Prosecco and soft drinks, not forgetting our namesake, great coffee!

Tickets are sold via this website or you can buy from the relevant shop. Seats are not reserved, but are available on a first-come, first-served basis, Therefore, if you have a ticket, you are guaranteed a seat, but if you have a preference as to where you like to sit in relation to the band, we recommend getting in early.

The gig is split into two 45 minute sets, starting at 8:00pm and the second set a little after 9:00pm. The music is usually finished by 10:15pm.

Taxis can usually pick up from outside the shops, but please check in advance. If you require a taxi booking for your ride home, please let our staff know during the break and they can arrange this for you.

*We only sell a limited number of tickets. Once we are full, we do not sell more tickets.

The culinary theme for Friday Night jazz is authentic Spanish Tapas. Plus of course, Mum’s fabulous cakes, which you can choose from the range in our chiller.

Now don’t mistake us for one those pretentious jazz venues. We want you to enjoy your night.

However, we do ask you to respect other members of the audience and keep your voice levels lower during the performances.

And we’re not allowed to promote dancing in the aisles, but we can’t stop you either!



We buy our tapas ingredients from mainland Spain, to ensure authenticity. Chef Warren Jones has developed the menu since 2010 at our original Tapas & Jazz nights. All you to do is decide what you’ll have…
