MONDAY NIGHT MUSIC CLUB
@ THE WATERMANS ARMS, RICHMOND UPON THAMES

The famous Monday Night Music Club at the Watermans Arms, Richmond began in 1998. It was started by Mac McGann and Alan Young and has for many years offered an eclectic mix of folk, blues, rock, indie, poetry, comedy and more. Mac and Alan created a very special atmosphere drawing in established performers and encouraging many new ones with their warmth, generosity, musical skill and, above all, humour. The club continues to this day and from 2005 has been hosted by Sebastian Stride.

STOP PRESS – THE OPEN MIC HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED

This site initially set out to celebrate the early days of the club with recently recovered video clips of the performers who made it such a unique experience (many are taken from a video made by Zolt Herhagerzs in 2003). Due to the positive response it was decided to bring the story up to date and include video and memories from the later years. Please let us know what you think and contribute your own recollections, photos and video clips at  mondaynightmusicclubinfo@gmail.com
