SAD CAFÉ – live! (SOLD OUT)

‘Every Day Hurts’, ‘My Oh My’, ‘Strange Little Girl’ and many more.

Regarded by many as one of the best live bands of the 80s, Sad Café are back at Acapela after their brilliant debut in 2023!

“A joyful trip down memory lane” (Mark Taylor, Record Collector Giants of Rock review 2022)

The present line-up once again perform their catalogue of great songs including the unforgettable Every Day Hurts (UK No.3), My Oh My (UK No.14 – both from their Top Ten album, ‘Facades’ – produced by Eric Stewart of 10cc), Strange Little Girl (UK No.32) and many more.

The band also had two US Billboard Hot 100 hits with ‘Run Home Girl’ and ‘La-Di-Da’.

Although vocalist Paul Young tragically died all too young, the band have always boasted the very best of musicians from the very start and the present line-up is no exception!

Trivia fans might care to note that the band has featured many of the UK’s leading musicians over its lifetime as guests, including – Phil Lanzon (Uriah Heep, Sweet, Grand Prix); Jeff Seopardie (Maggie Bell, Chris Rea, Barbra Dickson, Paul Carrack, Gary Holton);Alistair Gordon shared lead vocals in ‘Bankstatement’ a side project of Genesis’ Tony Banks…

Book a table for pre-concert dining

Acapela Studio provides pre-concert dining between 6.00pm and 7.30pm from our wood burning pizza oven. To view the current menu visit here.

Please purchase your concert tickets first before booking a table. We will not accept any table bookings that do not have a corresponding ticket purchase.

Then return to the event page to book your table, by selecting the date of your event, number of diners and time you require table. The times shown are the only vacancies left.  Please complete your email and phone number as this is required to ensure your table is allocated. You will receive confirmation of your booking by email and text.

If on the date you have chosen no tables are available - no times will be shown and the booking system will revert you back to todays date - PLEASE ENSURE YOU BOOK THE CORRECT DATE!

PLEASE NOTE THE VENUE RELIES ON THE INCOME FROM DINING TO ENSURE WE CAN BOOK ALL THE GREAT ACTS PERFORMING.

Income from the provision of pizzas is very important to the venue and if you have booked a table it is a requirement that all people sat at tables order food - a salad alternative is available to pizzas. Please do ensure that all individuals will be ordering on your table - if  this is not the case please cancel your table so others who are looking to dine can do so. Our apologies to raise this but recently we have had many tables (some very large) where less than 50% of those sat at tables have ordered food. Financially this is a real problem to the sustainability of the venue. 

  • All seating at tables must purchase a pizza - so please do not book a table if everyone is not eating.
  • Please ensure that you arrive 10 minutes before the time slot allocated to order your pizzas prior to your booking time.
  • Tables not seated within 15 minutes of the allocated time may be lost and allocated to other audience members wishing to order pizzas.
  • If you wish to book a table for 6 or more please email info@acapela.co.uk

Please note that all of our pizzas are made fresh to order and cooked in an authentic wood-fired oven. It may take up to 45 minutes to be served during busy periods.

IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO BOOK A TABLE YOU CAN STILL ORDER PIZZAS ON THE NIGHT (USUALLY ON BUSY NIGHTS NO LATER THAN  7.15PM) AND WE WILL SERVE THEM TO YOU WHEREVER YOU ARE SAT IN THE VENUE - IN A PIZZA BOX.
