**LATEST NEWS regarding COVID-19 (corona virus)

– All Green Note shows suspended until further notice **

Due to this unprecedented situation,  we have taken the heart-breaking decision to cancel or reschedule all our shows over the coming weeks and close the doors of Green Note until further notice. 

The safety of our artists, audience members and staff is our priority, and this felt like the only responsible course of action we could take. If you have booked a ticket for a show, you will be contacted by email with details of the rescheduled date or if the show is cancelled, you will automatically be refunded. 

As a small, independent venue this will have a huge impact on many levels, and as you can imagine, means we are in for a very tough time: our lovely loyal staff’s source of income is under threat, musicians have been left in the devastating position of having gigs cancelled… and finally, our beloved venue, which relies on all of your support (buying tickets, coming to see shows, buying food and drinks at the bar) is standing empty. Without our usual sources of income, Green Note is under critical threat, and if any of you are in a position to help, we would be very grateful. 

There is a growing online movement to support grassroots venues suggesting that people who have a ticket for a cancelled show, can opt not to receive a refund, but instead choose to use this as a donation towards helping the venue through this difficult time. However, the ticket provider we use processes refunds automatically, so do not offer us this option. 

Nevertheless, if you would like to make a donation to show your support, you CAN do so by clicking the link here. Every little helps, and we will use these donations towards retaining our hard-working, dedicated team and helping the venue come through this difficult period. We would be so grateful for any support you can offer.

This is obviously an extremely challenging time for musicians as well, who overnight have lost a large part of their livelihoods. We encourage you to support musicians directly through their own websites by purchasing their music and merchandise. Currently we’re just firefighting, picking up the pieces and getting on top of the admin for all the cancelled and rescheduled gigs. However, once things have settled somewhat, we will be changing our focus and hope to come up with creative ideas and ways to continue working with and supporting our musicians during this period of closure.


We are DETERMINED to survive this and will be doing our best to get our shows back on track as soon as possible. This too shall pass…. We know we have a loyal community of supporters and music fans out there, and are very much hoping to be back with our usual exciting and eclectic programme of music sooner rather than later!

Hope you all stay healthy and safe and we look forward to seeing you on the other side!

Lots of love, 

Immy and Risa xx

“The atmosphere of the Green Note is the best – it’s friendly, warm, and full of bright, thoughtful people who genuinely care about live music!” Anais Mitchell, musician

“Whether it’s as a performer, hosting an evening or just being a member of the audience, the Green Note is my absolute favourite small venue in London. It has such a great atmosphere that if feels like a concert in your own home, complete with a very nice family. All gigs should be like this!”
Ian Anderson, fRoots magazine

“…[has] gained an international reputation for its intimate atmosphere, close-knit community and folksy charm akin to New York’s Greenwich Village scene in the 1960s.” Ham & High

“Green note is simply the best venue in London for an intimate evening of acoustic music. Immy and Risa have created a real haven for musicians and music lovers and it all comes together in a candlelit hub with delicious food and the friendliest atmosphere you could hope for; it’s Camden’s best kept secret…I’m almost loathe to share it!” Lotte Mullan, musician

“With the feel of a 1960’s coffee shop music parlour, the Green Note in Camden is surely one of the shining jewels in London’s musical crown. Priding itself on the intimacy between artiste and audience and for providing a rare outlet for less mainstream acoustic musical styles…” americana-uk.com

“Green Note, which is to London what the Gaslight or Gerde’s once was to New York City” theartsdesk.com

“…if we’re heading north then it’s usually to this gem of a venue. Despite being just five minutes’ walk from Camden Town tube station, Green Note still feels like a hidden treasure. Especially if you get there early enough to sneak a seat in its basement piano bar alongside 40 or so other wised-up souls…” ‘The 10 Best Jazz Clubs In London’, Condé Nast Traveller
