The Preview Club
Every Friday evening 8·30 - midnight. £1 life membership, thenceforth free entry.
Downstairs function room at the Royal Naval Association Club.
73-79 East Street, Prittlewell, Southend on Sea, Essex, SS2 6LQ
The RNA CLub is mid-way between Victoria Avenue & Prittlewell Station.
You should spot the flagmast standing in front of the building. There is access to a small car park, down one side, and The Preview is best accessed from the rear entrance, off that car park.
Dave Anton has been running this club, weekly, since 1984.
Just a moment to let that sink in.
The club attracts an eclectic mix of musicians, and offers the less experienced a chance to perform at the beginning of the evening.
54 Red Door had some of their very first public airings at this club - when it met in the upstairs function room at The Spread Eagle, just up the road. We preferred that venue, but the current setup still gets access to the main bar, and also allows Dave to stage his occasional theatrical events.
