The final Catalyst Club of the year sees the return of Dave ‘Hip-hop’ Waller, historian and storyteller Chris Hare and a brand new speaker. As it’s Christmas there’ll be a few presents to give away, some audience participation and, as always, a free mince pie.

WELLSBOURNE SOCIETY BRIGHTON MUSIC SPECIAL
We have a really exciting line-up for our final Wellsbourne Society event of the year, celebrating the Brighton Music Scene in all its glory.
Former Bow-Wow-Wow and Monochrome Set guitarist, Foz, will be telling us about his role in one of Brighton’s legendary bands David Devant and his Spirit Wife.
Nick Pynn has played fiddle with everyone from Stewart Lee and Boothy Graffoe to B*witched and will be sharing some rock and roll tales and playing some of his unique instruments.
Piranhas guitarist John Helmer will telling us all about one of the city’s great ska bands and film archivist Frank Flood will be showing a special montage of Brighton bands in film.

PS. Due to overwhelming demand and a backlog of eager speakers we’ll be running two Catalyst nights in January on both 9th and 23rd of the month, featuring the legendary Dave Suit, Pete Fij (former singer of Adorable) and Donald Clark (who reduced us all the tears with his talk last year on the Arab Spring Uprising). 2014 also marks our 10th anniversary and a big celebration around July. Hard to believe I was only 23 when it all began.
And finally, after six years of keeping the price at £5, owing to rising energy bills and an expensive cocaine habit I’ll be putting the door price up to £6 which, when you think about it, is still jolly good value for money.
