Arts Club Experience

We have newly introduced the "Arts Club Experience" for potential members. It lasts for 90 days and you may take advantage of it from now until 31st March. The offer is that you put £120 'behind the bar', which you can spend in the Club over the next 90 days. If you spend it all before the 90 days are up, you can top it up. This way, you can get to know the Club and we can get to know you. At the end of the 90 days, or even before, if you decide you would like to join the Club, we can easily facilitate your application - you will undoubtedly know people by then, as we are a very friendly Club! (In the unlikely event that you choose not to join, any residual money would be forfeited to the Club) If this appeals to you then just email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
