We are very excited for our soft reopening of our beer garden from 15th April. You can book your table here. Come and join us for great beer, table service and hopefully lots of sun!
We are now also opening for bookings for events this summer & beyond. Get in touch to make a booking by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
See you soon!
The Upturned Glass (1947) was produced by and starred James Mason, before he accepted a contract with MGM. Hopefully it's available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=atcDlHxotQY
Mason plays Dr. Michael Joyce, a neurosurgeon who tells his students a story about the mother of a patient, whose death he suspected was murder. He set out to find her killer - but events took some unexpected turns. If you can get over the plummy accents, this is an interesting film noir (murder and adultery). Mason plays both the central figure and provides, in voice-over, some unsettling philosophizing. Warning: critics agree that the final scene was spoiled somewhat by the censor. As usual, let me know if you want the details of the zoom meeting that will happen at 7pm on Sunday April 11.
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.
