This is a small and intimate venue which attracts some big names in music and comedy. It’s off the beaten track of Milton Keynes but well worth a visit. Great value for money with excellent friendly staff.

The theatre and complex are so well designed and so welcoming. Almost every seat has an unrestricted view and so the atmosphere is advanced by the proximity of audience and performers. Excellent value for money, with top class acts. Great night(s) out!

We have seen many musicians at the Stables. Intimate theatre atmosphere, good sound and bar. The M1 seems to be sorted out now so travelling not too bad.
