The Stables of course, being in the grounds of the home of Cleo and the late John Dankworth. One of the highlights of my life was being there with the hosts and many more star studded guests. You enter it by a staircase with fairy lights at the sides, it is like tripping the light fantastic, truly Hollywood style!

I too have fond memories of the Stables - Eddie 'Lockjaw' Davis, Barney Kessel, John Dankworth himself and others.
