The SouthBank Club has found itself, like the rest of the country, in another lockdown. We are taking this opportunity to invest in some serious renovation works in our main bar area & upstairs studio so that we can reopen in the best possible shape in (hopefully) a few months time.
We are remaining connected online with our fortnightly virtual quiz, details of which can be found on our Facebook & EventBrite pages.
We hope to see you for a pint in our sparkly new & improved bar soon!
Culture Recovery Fund
A big thank you to all all our supporters over the last few months.
Having travelled hopefully and exhausted all our reserves in upgrading facilities at the building during Lockdown , we now have some good news. SouthBank has been fortunate enough to receive funding under the Arts Council Culture Recovery Fund which is designed to ensure venues can still operate viably until at least March 2021.
This will allow us to continue to operate and provide access to the arts for our community through the ongoing difficulties of the COVID-19 pandemic.
...Well after 3 months of closure due to the pandemic SOUTHBANK is about to open its doors again as Community Arts, Music and Dance Venue ...complete with bar and sunny garden! It's a unique social mix where you can drink a pint of ale, do a salsa or ballet class, join in the open-mic nights or just listen to the endless stories from the locals.
The opening event will be on Sat 4 July and run from 12 noon to 10pm with draught beers, bar snacks and the opportunity for open mic performers. To manage numbers this will be a free but ticketed event...tickets available from Wednesday 1 July. Priority and early access for tickets will be to SouthBank members. There are different membership options but you can sign up for free HERE. Or simply join our SouthBank Mailing List for news and views on upcoming events and keep informed of what's happening here
There are lots of opportunities to get involved on a voluntary/part-time basis.
We have spaces for meetings, live music, dance rehearsals, private functions, festivals, workshops and just about anything else you can think of!. If you would like to enquire about hiring the venue, please click here to fill in our enquiry form or call Jess on 01179 665552.
