RECORD FAIRS – We are pleased to announce regular Record Fairs at the Club commencing on Saturday 18th June 10:00am to 3:00pm. Please see listings for more details.
UKRAINE BENEFIT – A great success! Chris Difford and Ben Ottewell featured in Hilltop Sessions and Con Club benefit concert to support the victims of the Ukraine crisis. It was a special night at the Con Club on April 21st 2022, when the crowd were treated to a great evening of music to raise funds for DEC’s Ukraine Appeal supporting the victims of the crisis. Ben Ottewell opened the show, playing a string of individual and Gomez hits with his wonderful baritone voice and amazing guitar playing. This was followed by a very special and emotional performance by Ukrainian singers Olena Holt and her daughter Dasha Mineyeva who has just arrived in the UK from Kyiv. Local singer-songwriter Maia Eden who performed songs from her debut EP New Horizons as well as a few new tracks. Chris Difford closed the show with a compilation of his classic Squeeze hits, interspersed with solo material and some very entertaining tales from his life in showbusiness. The evening raised close to £4,500 from ticket sales and additional donations. Thank you to everyone that attended or contributed and a night to remember!
