Con Club GardenSituated in the centre of the beautiful historic town of Lewes, county town of East Sussex, with easy access to and from the city of Brighton and Hove, Lewes Con Club consists of a large bar area, opening up to a function room with a professional music stage. Out back is a spacious garden area.

The Con Club's CAMRA award winning bar is managed to a high standard with real ales, featuring guest ales and of course Harveys Best Bitter, plus other beers, lagers, ciders, wines and spirits.

Adjacent to the bar is a function room for music, meetings and live entertainment that can seat up to 100 people. The room includes a fully equipped sound stage with digital mixing desk and a professional lighting system suitable for music and other events.

Members can hire the function room for private parties, meetings etc. The club also has a professionally equipped kitchen able to cater for parties and other events.

Socialising, drinking, talking, laughing, listening, watching, dancing - it's all here at the Con Club. Come along and join us.



Our entry reservation list for this event is now full. However, we may have a few places available on the door from 9pm so you may still be able to get in. Those of you who have pre-reserved just need to tell us your name or email address when you arrive and pay for your entry. Your places will be held until 9 pm. It's going to be a busy night!


We are really sorry, but due to circumstances beyond anyone's control this event has had to be cancelled. We will be contacting all those who have booked.

Jesca Hoop


We still have some tickets for sale over the bar for Jesca Hoop's gig on Wednesday 31st January. Buy them direct from the club and save on the booking fee, but be quick - they'll be gone soon. Jessica "Jesca" Ada Hoop is a Californian singer-songwriter and guitarist based in Manchester, England. She's released five studio albums of her own, as well as live, acoustic and collaborative albums with others. She's on a European tour in the New Year and we're thrilled to have her performing here at the Con Club in Lewes.
