Welcome to Lewes Con Club, a private, mainly volunteer-run, not-for-profit social club and live entertainment venue, open every day to its members and non-members.
Situated in the centre of the beautiful historic town of Lewes, county town of East Sussex, with its easy access to and from the city of Brighton and Hove and a direct rail link to London, Lewes Con Club consists of a large bar area, opening up to a function room with a professional music stage. Beyond the bar is a spacious garden and barbeque area.
The Con Club's CAMRA award winning bar is managed to a high standard with real ales, featuring guest ales and of course our local Harveys Best Bitter, plus other beers, lagers, ciders, wines and spirits.
Next to the bar is the function room for music, meetings and live entertainment that can seat up to 150 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.
There are regular live music events on Friday nights, most of which are free to club members. There are also frequent live music events on other days of the week and on the last Sunday afternoon of each month there is 'Music in the Bar'. Non-members are welcome on all music nights and Sunday afternoons. There are also regular comedy and other events. Please note that some events do have an entrance fee.
THE CON CLUB IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Government advice is that we should all avoid social activities, such as going to pubs, clubs and restaurants.
The Committee has therefore decided to close the Club with immediate effect. We will continue to follow official government advice and will post updates on our website and social media.
Where possible we will attempt to re-arrange gigs, so please do look at our What's On pages for specific gig details, but for ticket refunds please contact the seller.
NO RIPPLE THIS MAY
The Lewes Ripple team has spent the last 6 months preparing a town-wide event to take place between the 4th and 10th May 2020, in eleven different venues and involving over sixty performers.
The Con Club has been especially helpful and supportive, with four major gigs, including the 8th May VE Day celebration, scheduled to take place at the club.
Given the current medical emergency we now consider that it would be inappropriate to hold the event at this time. When the pandemic has run its course there will be a great need for people to come together again in large numbers and, at the first sign of daylight, the Ripple will be ready to roll.
THE EVENT IS POSTPONED, NOT CANCELLED.
