PUG: Performance club night 

PUG is a performance cabaret and a cheeky disco. An evening of comedy, dance, art and all the glorious things in between.

Backstory

Back in July 2016, Hannah, Rosa and Jamie met a fisherman in Leazes Park. They asked him what he thought a radical new performance club night should be. The man replied, “Cheap. Good transport links. Fun.” These became the three pillars of PUG.

Since then PUG has presented work by visual artists, dancers, poets, theatre makers and people who work across these art forms. We’ve experienced communal screaming, oh so pretentious life-coaching and subversive, “take me to church”, dance. There’s been Elvis tributes, silent bingo games and experiments in Punk. See PUG ARCHIVE for more.
