What is ?

  • Outside of the touring show The Social Club is a fully curated venue available for commission – we can also work with other themes at your request.

  • The Social Club venue came about as a commission by Shambala Festival in 1995 and it has been going from strength to strength ever since.  

  • Starting in a small tent we have grown in size and worked in venues from Spiegeltents to big tops, small tops and venues all over, including the beautiful old cinema – Komedia in Bath.

  • consistently full houses, with an eclectic mix of our house cabaret, circus, matinee shows, street style shows, stand up comedy, cabaret, freak show, drag, bands and DJ’s and the unexpected!

  • A warm hearted, irreverent, inclusive club

  • changes from a FAMILY FRIENDLY venue during the day (not programmed for children but mostly suitable for them) to an ADULT PARTY atmosphere at night with stand up, bands, DJ’s and the more adult acts.

  • The social club can come complete with set, decor, production team, technical equipment and programming 


“The Social Club is ours and our children’s favourite venue in the day. At night it’s the place we go to have a party, see the unexpected and meet our friends.” audience member – Shambala Festival
