Darlington R'n'B Club has been running since 1995. We have, for the first seventeen years, held our events at Darlington Arts Centre until it closed,
due to Council cutbacks, in July 2012. We then moved to the Dolphin Centre for four months, however, we didn't settle here long due to sound problems
that couldn't be rectified and are now based at The Forum Music Centre in Borough Road, Darlington.
The Forum Music Centre is the place to be for live music in Darlington, as a not for profit Community Benefit Society (Registered as a Mutual with the FCA). The Forum
offers Live music, recording studios and even academic courses for music and arts so it is a perfect match for Darlington R'n'B Club as a great place for
for great music.
The committee that runs the R'n'B Club works hard at getting the right blend of bands that cover the wide umbrella of "Rhythm ‘n’ Blues".
We don’t always get it right, but we have a good idea of what our patrons like. So we try and balance this with our own tastes when introducing new bands that we feel will suit
the majority of our customers.
Our ticket prices reflect the outgoing event expenses so we keep the prices as low as possible to encourage as many people as possible to come and enjoy a great
night out and for it not to cost too much. Our belief is that a band plays well if their needs are catered for, we do our best to look after them with refreshments and
comfortable changing facilities. And we always provide comfortable overnight accommodation for any of our bands who require it. Darlington R'n'B Club's philosophy
is great music and a great time at a great price and we will endeavour to keep prices as low as we can.
We know from talking to bands that we have a great reputation on the R'n'B circuit for putting on good gigs and looking after
their requirements. We enjoy promoting live Rhythm ‘n’ Blues events in Darlington, so until it stops being enjoyable, we’ll continue for as long as possible! Until then –
please support us if you can!
