A good number of members have suggested that they would appreciate the club being open on Saturday evenings.
Many attend Saturday matinees or evening performances in town and would like to drop in for a drink, either after or before shows. In response to these requests the committee have decided to give it a trial with a once a month Saturday opening.
The bar will open to members and their guests from 5pm to 11.15pm.
Extra staff costs are involved and to offset this we will be asking for a £5 admission fee for guests (obviously members are free.)
With our great value for money bar we are sure that £5 will prove a good investment for your friends!
Saturday opening will continue through to the June closure for refurbishment. Spring dates are 30th March – 27th April and 25th May.
Judith Quiney asks;
I wonder if any of our members worked with Winifred Atwell and would be prepared to share memories.
I have a friend working on a project about her. In the first instance, please contact me.
Hi, my name is Nigel Male and I own and run the Charlie Cairoli appreciation society, we were set up in 1994 to perpetuate the memory of the late great Charlie Cairoli.
The last 26 years, I have been researching the life and career of Charlie. It has always been a dream to produce a book, to document this. Finally the dream is coming to fruition. The book is set to be published in spring 2020.
Could I kindly ask if any of your members knew Charlie or ever worked with him? I am very keen to speak to anyone who is happy to share their memories.

Thanks for dropping-by… The C.A.A. website is being re-developed.
Initially much of the website framework and copy is being put in place and tested before the artwork. Then more content and features are due to be added.
All content works are scheduled for completion before July 24th. So please drop by again soon and see how we’re getting along.
Update: July 19th 2017: The red curtain background was a real issue and still not 100%. This put me a day behind. I hope to make up this time and still hit my target of July 24th.
Update: July 21st 2017: Almost all content is now in place though some better images are being sourced. This leaves just an intro banner to be built for the home page to declare the initial construction complete.
Other new features will be added over 2017 into 2018. News articles should appear in regularly in the sidebar to the right here. Note: This sidebar shows at the bottom if viewing on a mobile.
Update: July 24th 2017: We managed to achieve completion by the projected date with all available content included.
Update: August 7th 2017: Following a premium upgrade to a key plugin I’m glad to report that the ‘search’ and ‘categories’ section now display the correct curtain backdrops and the intended copyright notice displays correctly. Later I will try again to feature the “tragi-comedy” masks of the actual CAA stage at the top-centre. This is done on my website for the CAA banner but proving troublesome on this site for the moment.
Of course a website is never really completed because it will expand over time. This website in particular will demonstrate this as input over time from all members will make it’s growth very dynamic over the coming years.
Any comments and suggestions are most welcome via the “Contact Us” Page and the obvious link to me.
Thanks for your patience. Paul.
