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

The Margate Arts Club is a joyful, Queer-run, LGBTQIA+-focused, anti-racist, intersectional organisation and community space. 
We welcome and open our doors to everyone who is nice and respectful; radical free thinkers, artists, creatives, kinksters, left-wingers, socialists, environmentalists, supporters of equal rights and allies to the LGBTQIA+ community.
We do not tolerate racism, transphobia, homophobia, biphobia, xenophobia, ableism, ageism, body shaming, slut shaming, or misogyny.
Please do not enter the building if you do not agree or can not abide by the above. Have fun, go wild, but respect each other’s boundaries. Ask for consent before touching anyone.  This includes touching hair. Let people dance and talk in peace if they want to. Everyone deserves a night without being hassled or objectified. No means no.
If you ever have an unwanted interaction or micro-aggression, please inform a member of our team on the night, and we will deal with it straight away. Also, look out for each other. This is a community space, so let’s have each other’s backs and also check in on each other’s welfare. 
Big love X
