Following the government's ban on enclosed gatherings announced on Wednesday 18 March, the Club is closed until May 17 pending further review of government decisions.
If you have tickets to one of our shows in that period, we are going to be in touch to arrange a refund or (if you prefer) move your booking to later in the year. We are a small team, keep an eye on your email and please be patient as we reach out.
Look after yourselves, be kind to the very many people who are now wondering whether they will have a place to live as their jobs disappear, and support one another during this historical crisis.
If you happen to be at all in a position to help, please consider supporting The Butterfly Club by donating today.
