Town of Cats + Balkanoes + Clan Dextine

October 7, 2016 @ 9:00 pm - October 8, 2016 @ 2:00 am

| Free before 8pm, £5 after


Rescued from the water’s numbing embrace by Old Ma and her trusty sidekick Sooz ‘The BallCrusher’; Joe, Adam, Barney, Jake, Toby, Henry and Nik were shoved unceremoniously behind instruments, mewling and dripping. Ol’ Ma took up her trusty sax, and told them all to play up or pack it in. And play they did. Spun fucked-up fairy tales of their former lives and spat ‘em out over brassy hooks, skanking rhythms, hypnotic grooves and tantalising melodies… They sang starry-eyed of childhood wonders and lustily of life’s little highs. Can’t sing? They’ll make you. Can’t dance? They’ll make you. They are Town of Cats.

Providing Gyp-Hop Ska with lashings of Latino and a side of Funk, these crazy cats know all too well how to get a howling party going!






Formed in 2010 in Cambridge, the Balkanoes fuse Eastern European and Jewish folk music with a joyous energy to guarantee a Balkan bash of mammoth proportions.
Moving seamlessly from traditional klezmer to gypsy grooves and unique takes on well-known classics (and the odd gangster rap…), The Balkanoes will keep you dancing all night long!





Clan Dextine takes his audience on a journey through bass and time namely from swing to ska, blues to Balkan, roots to rave and beyond.

He likes to throw some globalized whomp and glitched-up stomp into the mix and has always got his swangin’ D’n’B up the sleeves for when the moment is right!

The venue is open from 10:30am, serving food from 12-10pm. Happy Hour is 5-7pm!

The Magic Garden – COVID-19 UPDATE


To all of our wonderful customers,

As people across the UK adjust to life during these extraordinary times surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak, pubs throughout our nation have suffered declining patronage and, unfortunately, the Magic Garden is no exception.  As a result, we at the Magic Garden have been left with little choice and have made the decision to cancel all upcoming music and entertainment events effective immediately and until further notice. We value all of our customers and staff and make this decision for the benefit of all who enjoy our establishment.  We will be watching the daily updates from the government and will resume entertainment once we are confident to do so.  In the meantime, we welcome all those who would like to come and see us, have a drink and say hello.
