PUG: PERFORMANCE CLUB NIGHT

“HIGHLY POLITICAL ART WITH A FOCUS FIRST AND FOREMOST ON CREATING A GOOD NIGHT OUT.” – NARC MAGAZINE   
COMMUNAL DAFTNESS INTERSPERSED WITH MOMENTS OF BEAUTY” – EXEUNT MAGAZINE 

Newcastle’s latest platform for radical variety acts, PUG, is a performance cabaret and a cheeky disco. An evening of comedy, dance, art and all the glorious things in between.

See our UP NEXT page for when you can join the party.

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.
