The Club for Acts and Actors
President: ANITA DOBSON
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 private 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. Most Mondays concerts are staged by club members and are a regular feature of club life with many additional 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.
