What are Club Nights?
The title Club Night was commonly used in the fifties and sixties by organisations in order to exploit a loophole in the law. The loophole allowed night-clubs and theatre companies to put on shows that were deemed not fit for public or theatre audiences as instructed by the Lord Chamberlain’s department. The performances had to be put on for free and only for the benefit of “friends” and members of the company. Many well known plays like John Osborne’s ‘A Patriot for Me’ started life in this manner.
The origins of Everyman’s own club night season stem from that period and the name club night (or clubnight) has remained ever since. Clubnights are free for anybody to attend and you don’t have to be a member. They are held every Wednesday at 8:00 pm at Chapter Arts Centre, Market Rd., Canton, Cardiff, from September to May unless otherwise stated.
Our Company Clubroom is situated on the ground floor. Once you’ve passed the cinema on the left, we’re at the end of the corridor on the right.
We’d love to see you there!
All our clubnight slots are fully booked up to Christmas but if you would like to present your own clubnight in the New Year there are currently plenty of slots available.
