Down on Brighton’s London Road you’ll find this radical hub of buzzing activities. During the day it’s a cafe-cum-bookshop and in the evenings it makes way for a pumping lineup of local musicians all dedicated to the cause. The Cowley Club differs from the rest as it’s collectively owned and maintained by volunteers striving for social change. There’s an honest bar with tipples such as Freedom stout and Westons Cider and membership is a mere £1. This allows you access to the jam packed line-up of free events.
