About Margate Arts Club

We have been running since 2013.
The Margate Arts Club is a pure joyful queer-run, LGBTQIA+ femme-focused, anti-racist, intersectional, community organisation. We encourage freedom of expression, dressing up, costumes, fun times and hot, sweaty dancing.

We are home to a number of regular dance events, including Cockles and Muscles, CAMP, Fast Fashion and DANCE DANCE DANCE. We host regular cabaret nights such as Scratch and Sniff and Is a Drag.
We also host socials, gatherings, experimental music nights and a whole host of other community-focused projects.

Code of Conduct

Mindful allies of the LGBTQIA+ community & radical free-thinking humans are welcome, but please respect each other and staff at all times. We do not tolerate transphobia, homophobia, biphobia, racism, xenophobia, ableism, ageism, body shaming, slut shaming, or misogyny.

Anyone seen doing the above will be removed from the venue and banned. Have fun, go wild, but respect each other’s boundaries. If unsure or talking to someone for the first time, ask for pronouns before gendering a person. Ask for consent before touching anyone. This includes touching hair. No means no. Let people talk and dance in peace if they want to. Everyone deserves a night out without being hassled or objectified.

We reserve the right to refuse entry to anyone we feel may put our community at risk and ruin the vibe.

We work closely with our staff and security to try our best to ensure The Margate Arts Club is an enjoyable, safe space for everyone. Our staff will be identifiable on the night; please come to us for help anytime.
