Latest News + A Job Vacancy

Hello music lovers,

Hope you’re doing well and have been enjoying these sunny days!

Last week we had our first ever hybrid show! The fantastic band ‘Our Man in the Field’ played a show to a small socially distanced live audience and we also simultaneously streamed it for audiences watching at home. It was a great success and we learnt a lot from it… we look forward to doing more hybrid shows in the future!

We’re Hiring. We are preparing for our re-opening in late June, and will soon be hiring new staff! We are looking for 2 new (part-time) bar-tenders to join our lovely team. We are looking for people who are outgoing, friendly, responsible and have at least two years bar-tending experience, as well as a broader interest in Green Note and what we do. Whoever takes this role would need to be available to work on evenings and weekends, able to use their own initiative and have a good command of English. We are looking for someone who is both able to work well on their own, and as part of a team. Supervising experience is a bonus. If you think you might be right for this position or know someone who is, please email a CV and brief covering letter, telling us a bit about yourself and outlining why you want to work for us.

We’ve had a couple of good articles recently about our Virtually Green Note shows during lockdown, and plans for re-opening. Check them out here.

Ham & High

All in London

We look forward to (hopefully!) starting to see you in person again in a few weeks. Check out the events page on our website for more info on our upcoming shows!

Lots of love,

Immy & Risa xx
