Now in its 45th season (2018-2019), the club meets every Wednesday (summer and xmas breaks excepted) and starts promptly at 8.00pm with an opening act, maybe two, followed by the headliner's first set.

After an interval there is usually a song from one of our residents, followed by a short set from the opening act, the raffle(!), and the headliner's second set. We aim to finish around 10.45pm or thereabouts.

Tickets are available in advance for each event from by clicking on the on-line box office links in the list of shows.
Often you can get a ticket at the door from 7.30pm on the night (subject to availability).
