About Us

We host Open Stage nights, Showcase nights, Double Header and Guest nights.
All our performances begin at 8.00pm. PA is provided and the venue is seated. 
See our Open Stage page for details of Open Stage nights.

Our Showcase nights feature three acts, each one having a 45 min set
Performers are often chosen from the Open Stage 'headline' acts.
Sets can also be taken up by artists already on the circuit.

Our Guest nights promote the music of a range of nationally recognised artists
Support slots are often taken by our grass roots performers, who have progressed from our Open Stage nights or Showcase nights.

We also organise 'special concerts' and run events jointly with other organisations in Cambridge.
One of The Club's special concerts in 2017 was a Steve Knightley 'grow your own gig', and in 2018 we hosted a tribute gig for Dave Swarbrick. In 2019 we organised two joint events with the Mill Road History Society. One of them featured singer/songwriter Louise Jordan telling the true story of suffragette Hannah Mitchell, and in the other, the duo Na Mara used words and music to tell the story of the Spanish child refugees who were housed in Cambridge.

We organise the Friday night Club tent at the annual Cambridge Folk Festival.
This evening features local and national performers as well as having a number of slots for site performers.
