The Brudenell Social Club assumes the role of fuel keeping the music flame alive in the business. Actually Brudenell’s motto is to have all its doors wide open for improvisation, gigs, networking and social interaction. Countless art displays take place at the Leeds’ venue as well as one of the most captivating features they hold: the secret concerts.
“The Brudenell Social Club is owned by its Members, run by its members, for its members,” they proclaim on their facebook page. Proudly and faithfully, the most curious cats that their intentions are not connected with profit but with pleasing everyone who knocks on their door.
In fact, the non-profit policy has been guiding Brudenell since its inception and remains one of the top priorities of this Leeds’ space. Art and its freedom seems to be the only interest Brudenell’s team has had along the way.
Enigma and surprise live music performances are a few of the sweetest extras they preserve. Leeds locals hold them dear and it is definitely one of the most thrilling things to be part of. Bands like Kaiser Chiefs, the Kooks and Franz Ferdinand integrated the list of clandestine shows.
Since November of 1913, Brudenell has dominated the local social and recreational activity. A long history precedes the facilities who have been full of cultural programmes and initiatives. Music has turned out to be one of the primary attractions of the venue. Numerous promoters choose the space to publicize their artists’ spectacles, exhibitions and presentations.
Nowadays the venue has capacity of welcoming 400 people and it is open from Monday to Sunday. Its agenda is pumping with new singer-songwriters, bands and notable music legends. Leeds continues to be an inspiring place for artists and their loyal followers and Brudenell Social Club is one of the strongest evidences.
Recent post-rock madness has placed the Brudenell in the showcases’ route. Jeniferever, God Is An Astronaut and iLiKETRAiNS were a few of the famous bands that perceived that and performed there. Leeds’ bar has become “one of the city’s best-loved small venues,” stated The Guardian.
