If you'd like to play then entrance is free. But make sure you book a two-song slot beforehand - we are always full by the time the evening arrives! Click below to join our email list or find out more:
We sometimes also have a featured artist, but please do not contact us to request one of these - we offer featured slots to people who have come along to the open stage evenings.

We share CB2 Saturday evenings with two other organisers. Acoustic Routes feature concerts with some of the best acoustic performers from both sides of the Atlantic. Strummers provide music with a social conscience and provide a showcase for local and young musicians.
Please note that the July 9th Strummers open stage has been cancelled
July 16th and 23rd 2016 Open Stages
On Saturday July 16th and 23rd we are hosting our last two open stage evenings of the summer downstairs at CB2.
On Saturday July 16th we welcome Brazilian guitar virtuoso Gui Mallon whose music is a unique blend of Brazilian folk music, classical and jazz guitar. Gui has played all over the world to thousands of people. As a young guitarist he crossed North America and Europe playing in the streets. Living in Sweden, Gui formed three groups and a mini chamber orchestra of eleven musicians, Gui Mallon Ensemble, performing and recording live at the Montreux Jazz Festival. Gui has released eight albums. See https://www.facebook.com/guimallonQ/
And on July 23rd we welcome Amy Goddard. Originally from South Wales, Amy Goddard now lives in Portsmouth where she sings and plays regularly at local folk and acoustic clubs. She is a keen singer/songwriter and guitarist. She is also a guitar, piano and theory of music teacher. 'There are those who can skilfully craft meaningful lyrics. Others compose delightful melodies. There are those who can engagingly perform. Amy Goddard singularly combines all those talents … a rare gift.' See http://www.amygoddardmusic.co.uk/
