Club Urania
Friday 16 September, 8pm-midnight

In-person tickets are now SOLD OUT, however online tickets are still available. Book tickets to Club Urania via Cambridge Junction here.

Please note that the lift to the upper level is out of service, so there is no wheelchair access to the Decompression Space.

Re-entering the atmosphere after a sold out first season, Club Urania is back!

Cambridge’s premium performance and music night for LGBTQ+ people and allies returns this autumn. Bringing you a constellation of star performers, otherworldly open-mic, and heavenly mixes from resident DJs.

For the first Club Urania in our next season, Wysing Arts Centre in conjunction with A Language of Holes, are pleased to present Nat Raha.

Nat Raha will be presenting a new work-in-progress with a particular emphasis on centring captioning and access in the development of the work. This work-in-progress is commissioned by Wysing in partnership with Sarah Hayden and AHRC funded A Language of Holes, a project that explores innovative approaches to captioning in live contexts.

Also performing the same night will be a fabulous performance from Jake Wood, as well as brilliant sets in our regular open mic slots.

Club Urania is committed to reducing barriers to access, providing pay-what-you-feel tickets, a decompression space in the venue, and live-captioning. This season is expected to sell out so get your tickets early!

Spring 2022 season featured the best of contemporary queer performance including the likes of Whiskey Chow, Catherine Hoffman, Harold Offeh, Pink Suits, Symoné, and Wet Mess.

Club Urania is a collaboration between Cambridge Junction, Wysing Arts Centre, Roeland van der Heiden, Diarmuid Hester, and Celia Willoughby. 


Club Urania will be live streamed on zoom for those that aren’t able to attend in person.
