AMOK is our magical monthly night of experimental sound and performance.


Our ninth edition, AMOK 9, is graced with the likes of lovely cellist, Matt phillips, who is going to hit us with some neolithic rock music (potentially).


Barrington Brook is honestly a total wild card and i've got no idea what he's going to do, but every time i've seen him live before it has changed my life.


Birmingham legend Blue Ruth will be hitting us with the big sounds, big tunes and big times. Think vacuum cleaner factory being destroyed by godzilla made out of chainsaws. With style!

AMOK a pay what you can entry charge:

(Pay what you can means literally that. Strapped for cash? Got lucky in the lottery this week? Pay whatever ticket bracket you want, no questions asked. No one will be refused for lack of funds)


9th amok since we started = woo tickets otd as usual £3/£5/£7/£9

The Artefact Quiz has your typical music, film and television rounds, picture and famous people round too but with a good healthy smattering of bonus and art rounds too! It's highly fun, highly daft and nice way to spend a Thursday evening.

Grab your team members or come along on your own and meet new people here! Get down to Stirchley, grab yourself a drink at the bar and get ready for the night of your life.

Doors open 7.30, quiz starts at 8pm.

We welcome groups using our space for their activities. If you need a supportive environment for your community meet-up get in touch with us and we'll see if we can help.
