Culture Recovery Fund

Culture Recovery Fund grant in the latest round of funding.
We are enormously grateful to The Arts Council as the awarding of the grant has given everyone at the venue a tremendous boost and has allowed us to plan with certainty for the future. As well as allowing us to keep all our staff employed, it will benefit all the musicians, artists, technicians, other individuals and small business’ that are involved in the creating and promoting of events and gigs at our venue.
We can’t wait to be opening our doors very soon and bringing the Brighton and South East community amazing music and memories once again.

APRIL TO JUNE SIT DOWN PROGRAMME

We’ve been hard at work getting the Socially Distanced reopening schedule sorted, and are happy to announce a programme stacked with talent across Drum & Bass, Jungle and beyond, all the way up until the full club opening in June!
Check out some of the headliners below and many more to be announced, who will be playing to an audience seated in our improved outdoor marquee setup, featuring bigger, better sound and decor.
Full info on dates, line ups and TICKETS go live Friday (tomorrow) at 4pm. Each of these shows are very limited capacity and we expect them all to sell out, so make sure you don’t miss out!
Hoping for a safe and quick return to full nightclub shows ASAP, but until then we’ve got you covered.

Big love,

Opening back up

Hey everyone,

The Volks team is putting some plans together for reopening. We hope to be improving the sit down format enjoyed previously, with better sound and a bigger marquee on the newly extended pavement outside the venue.

We are tentatively eyeing the return of clubbing with no restrictions in June but feel that’s a long way off and subject to many different things that could change quickly. Lets not get ahead of ourselves here!

Actual info on reopening to follow in the very soon 🙂

Looking forward to welcoming you all back at the venue.
