Ventnor Arts Club is situated in the centre of town. Come along to relax, have a drink, enjoy a film, live broadcasts from the Royal Opera House, NT, RSC, Royal Ballet and more. We host live music and a range of regular events with local community groups.  The club is available for private hire and is a great location for receptions, business meetings and presentations. Our beautiful 1920′s bank has been restored and refurbished to reveal its previously hidden beauty but is also bristling with technology like fast WiFi, HD cinema projection and surround sound. We have also full air conditioning and exchange systems for your comfort and safety. We are pleased to invite applications for annual membership. Please see the membership page on our website for further details. Visitors’ Memberships are also available and all are welcome to our ticketed events, no membership required.

If you would like to arrange a visit to the club or wish to enquire about visitors’ membership, please email or call on 01983 857060.

For your safety

There are aspects of the club’s operation that must be modified to comply with the guidelines and others just common sense given what we now know. They include:
  • Booking is required for all events even those which are free. We need to manage numbers and record details of who is attending.
  • The number of available spaces will be lower than normal and allocated seating will enable us to group people in households.
  • There is a touchless hand sanitiser as you enter and at other points – please use them as soon as you arrive.
  • We have a strict and continuous cleaning regime which includes seating, tables, rails, doors etc.
  • The toilets will be restricted to one person at a time and cleaned often.
  • We have increased ventilation and run extraction fans and full air conditioning (not recirculating)
  • Drinks and snacks will be ordered and served at your tables. All glasses and implements are steam cleaned.
  • All payments must be by contactless card or smartphone, via a portable terminal, at your table. No cash I am afraid.
  • Masks must be worn when entering the club or moving around the space although not when seated.
  • If you have the Covid App, please scan the QR code in the vestibule.
With these and other precautions, we hope that you will feel as safe as you can be when visiting the club. If you have any questions or concerns, please ask us by emailing As much as we can do, everybody’s well-being depends on all of us respecting the guidelines and not attending if you have any symptoms, been with someone displaying them or feel you have been exposed to more risk than normal.
