The folks at the Kodak Collective are providing shelter and mutual aid to those in needs in this cold winter and we are going to support them raising money through our evening community meal!
Treat yourself to some nice vegan meatballs cooked in delicious tomato sauce and served with a side of garlic bread!
Come and hang out at the Cowley Club, eating together is better than eating alone!
Dinner will be £5!
Doors are at 7pm!
Members and Guests welcome!
Q: What does it mean “members and guests welcome”?
A: The Cowley Club’s bar operates as a private members club, which is a restriction of our alcohol licence
Q: Do I have to be a member, or know a member to come?
A: NO! Everyone is welcome*, and you can sign in on the door as a guest
Q: How do I become a member?
A: Pop along to the club any time we are open, or at the show, and grab a membership form (they are in the rack next to the bar), pay your £2 for a lifetime membership and you can pick up your card a few weeks later
Q: Do I need to sign up for membership in advance?
A: No, we encourage you to join as a member, but everyone is welcome when we have an event on
Q: How do I get in? It looks a bit scary! Are you even open?
A: We get it, there’s a closed door and boards over the windows, it probably doesn’t look that welcoming from the outside, but it couldn’t be more different once you’re inside 😂 You need to ring the bell, one of our volunteers will peer out of the hatch and open the door to you. Unfortunately, one of the conditions of our alcohol licence is that we have to be hidden from the outside when the bar is serving, but don’t let that put you off
Q: You say you’ve got the cheapest pints in town, really?
A: Yes we do! Beers from £2.80, gin + tonic (with a Fever Tree mixer) is just £3! We’ve also got ciders, ales, more spirits and mixers, non-alcoholic beer, gluten-free lager, speciality soft drinks, teas, infusions and coffee
Q: Cheaper than Wetherspoons?
A: Of course!
Q: Why is there an asterisk next to “everyone is welcome*”?
A: We have a safer-spaces policy at the club, this is to ensure that everyone feels welcome in our little patch of the world, in short, it means that we don’t tolerate racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, or any other behaviour that will make any of our other guests feel uncomfortable. This is a policy designed to encourage as many people to feel welcome and make the club as open as possible to all, not to discourage anyone from coming or make them feel unwelcome. It doesn’t mean you can’t crowdsurf or dance to the bands! It just means that we’d like our guests to be considerate of everyone else, just as we’d like the rest of the world to be
Q: Is the club accessible?
A: Mostly. There is step free access from London Road into the main building, and we regularly welcome people to the club with a range of accessibility requirements. To get to our accessible toilet, you need to take a trip round to the back and come in through the library, ask one of our volunteers if you need assistance. There will be loud music and stage lighting in use during this show
Q: I’m still confused!
A: If you’ve you any questions, ask away, we’ll be happy to answer them!
One last thing, please respect the club by not sneaking your own booze in, and not doing anything illegal when you’re on the premises, if you get what I mean?
