CLUB CLOSED until further notice


Latest Update from the Chairman June 2020.

Sadly We are losing some of our stalwart members of the Club due to the covid virus and other non related illnesses. We will have a Celebration of their lives and work when we return to the club!
A service & celebration is already arranged for February 2021 for our dearest Joane Hall who would have been 100 in February 2021. So we shall pay our respects to all of the members who have passed away then.
Hopefully we will send a Newsletter out to all members in August when we know more definite facts. Until then please be patient and keep smiling!
If you need to chat or need any help of any kind please call me or the Office or a Committee member. We are here to help you all! Don’t feel alone!
I, we, are just a phone call away. We are all in this situation together & we can help each other! Don’t forget the Benevolent fund & Samaritan fund are helping many of you already! So do call or write.
My love to you All,
Your Chairman, Kay xxxxxxxxx  & virtual hugs!!!

The Club for Acts and Actors...

Fully refurbished in 2019 this unique club with it’s equally unique history moves into the future!

Founded in 1897 as the Concert Artistes’ Association to help concert artistes experiencing hardship, the CAA is today a thriving members’ club for entertainment professionals.

We are situated in the heart of London’s theatre-land. The club offers an ideal location to meet for a drink, a meal or a chat.

The atmosphere is a relaxed and friendly one. Weekly concerts by members are a regular feature of club life with regular social events throughout the year. The club is a frequent venue for rehearsals, auditions and workshops, providing a constant hum of activity throughout the week.

The CAA is proud of its heritage and warm welcome to performers and entertainers. Becoming a member is not about paying a subscription; it is about joining fellow performers, enjoying good company and comradeship. These are the core values of the Club for Acts and Actors.

Nor have we lost touch with our founding purpose. In addition to fostering friendships and professional advice, our Benevolent Fund continues to give practical and confidential support to members in need.

Joan Hall


(Further update)
Joane Hall passed away on Friday 8th May and her funeral took place on 1st June at Golders Green Crematorium. Sadly only ten people were allowed to attend due to the current restrictions and was not open to the many who would have liked to have been there.
She was 99 years old  and had a fascinating life. A club member and regular attendee for many years, Joane was a great character and club favourite.
Also a marvellous raconteur; her showbiz exploits including travelling widely in ENSA during the war. She will be much missed. We intend to celebrate her life fully at the club in February 2021 when she would have reached 100. Meanwhile here is a full obituary including a selection of photos.
