291 Club Variety Show and Talent Competition
A cross between a show at the London Palladium and one at the New York Apollo, the 291 Club is a raucous variety show where the audience picks the best act.

Singers, dancers, musicians and more take to the stage to try their luck. Eschewing notions of polite applause, any act which fails to entertain the crowd is soon booed off. Any astounding act which reaches the end of their performance reemerges at the end of the show – and whoever gets the loudest, longest applause from the audience is crowned the winner!

Past contestants have included Skunk Anansi, Eternal and comedian Terry Alderton to name but a few.

Judges will include industry professionals from across the entertainment Spectrum. Music Producers, Record Company Executives, Celebrities, Live Booking Agents and of course The Audience.
Calling all…
