See below for details…

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.

He also took over the organisation of the CAA Ex Servicemen’s Club. Organising their Annual Dinner. He gave tirelessly of his many talents…. Read more here.

Sadly Ron is not alone amongst our dearly departed in recent times. A page dedicated to them all with the header “The Final Curtain” can still and forever be read here or under the “Notices” section of this website.
