Cowley Club

Welcome to The Cowley Club

Happy Birthday Harry!

Today marks what would have been the 130th birthday of the legendary figure our club is named for, the one and only Harry Cowley. To celebrate the occasion, we've compiled a comprehensive history of the guv'nor, his life, work and legacy


2021 Benefit Mixtape

Curated by Tadpole Records, the Cowley Club 2021 benefit mixtape is available now for ‘pay what you feel’ download! Featuring over 50 tracks of punk, hardcore, crust, d-beat, anarcho-punk and more from bands across the world, with some exclusive tracks you won’t hear anywhere else, all in support of The Cowley Club


We made it!

We are still accepting donations, and any further cash raised, once we’ve paid off some bills and debts, will go towards making some long overdue repairs of our PA system, which our Ents collective have been ably contending with for years now, to enable us to put on more and better quality live music events once we can finally reopen

We aren’t the only space that needs support however, there are other spaces who are similarly struggling and we hope you can show them the same support we have been lucky enough to receive since we launched our crowdfunder a mere four days ago. If you know of any other anarchist projects that are looking for support, please comment below so we can share them


We're nearly there!

The past few days has been a wild ride, seeing the support and love everyone has for our little autonomous space – we’re now only £185 away for reaching our crowdfunding target! Thank you to everyone who has contributed any amount, every one of you has made a huge difference and ensuring the club will be here for the anarchists, the punks, our community, and everyone else who shares our vision


Less than £1000 to go

In just two days, you’ve exceeded our wildest expectations and now we are less than £1000 from reaching our target to keep The Cowley Club up and running. Every (positive) comment, repost, share and 🖤 has been a spectacular help in raising this much, and it’s all down to our awesome community of friends, supporters, and comrades. We wouldn’t be here without you, and we couldn’t have make it this far without your support


2021 Crowdfunder update – 24 hours in

The past 24 hours has been absolutely overwhelming, to see the love and support from our community in Brighton and around the world in the form of the messages of support to cold hard cash, has warmed our anarchist hearts


Crowdfunder 2021 – Save The Cowley Club

We’ve made it this far thanks to our tireless volunteers and the support of our community, but we need your help to make it through the next few months and keep The Cowley Club going until we can open up again! We’re crowdfunding just short of £5,000 to ensure we’re still here once we make it through lockdown and the pandemic, so we can get back to doing what we’ve been doing since 2003, and keep on getting better!
