The return of The nabokov Arts Club


Bounce up and down … The nabokov Arts Club is back.

Following its triumphant debut in May, our extravaganza of theatre, music, comedy, poetry, film and lots more returns on Saturday 13 September 2008 at the awe-inspiring Village Underground.

Expect explosive new plays, side-splitting comics, stunning cinematography, high-voltage poetics, rabble-rousing live bands, superstar DJs and lashings of atmosphere. Plus booze, food, dancing and general tomfoolery till the early hours.

Join us in our fantastical, skylight studded Victorian warehouse conversion for the undisputed heavyweight champion of artistic happenings anywhere, ever (since the last one).

Here’s the line-up so far…

Sleeve Notes by Duncan Macmillan
An exquisite short play by one of the most powerful and original new voices in British theatre, about a child who makes a list of every brilliant thing.

Kill Joy by Gary Owen
A shattering short from one of the UK’s leading playwrights written in response to Sleeve Notes.

Dockers MC
Fresh from supporting Kate Nash on tour, the most exciting new act on the spoken word circuit brings her inimitable brand of ‘floetry’ to the Arts Club.

Bridgette Amofah
Lead singer of Oi Va Voi destined for greatness sings soaring, spine-tingling soul and funk backed by her full band. 

The Toy Hearts
Exhilarating bluegrass from this internationally acclaimed five-piece family band from Brum.

And your compere...
Luke Wright

There’s lots more acts still to be announced, so keep ‘em peeled here on the nabokov blog for all the latest.

Tickets are just £15 and you can buy them here. The last Arts Club sold out and we had to turn loads of people away which we really hate doing, so please book your tickets now to be sure of a seat at the high table of entertainment. Then choose your party frock.

We. Officially. Cannot. Wait. YEAH!
