Lankykats was conceived as a venue for musicians to meet, get together and play.


When this began on the 30 September 2011  it all started with a scratched together backline of amplification,sound system, drums and mostly donated gear. Over the years we have strived to upgrade this equipment by selling old stock and gradually upgrading with better gear.

This is a continuing work in progress where visiting bands can enjoy performing with state-of-the-art equipment.


The £1 admission fee for all attendee's, a prize raffle draw, and other raised funds are used first and foremost in this capacity.

After this and surplus ammounts are donated to our delegated charities.


All Lankykats volunteers, front room and back room,  together with the visiting bands, donate their talents and time for free.

No one receives any remuneration or cash-in-kind.
