The day we've been dreading is finally here - we've had confirmation that the Canterbury Arms is to close on September 5th. I really thought we'd make it through to Christmas at least - in fact, part of me thought the pub would be with us for ages yet - but sadly not. So we have an emergency HDIF/not HDIF/whatever you want to call it THIS FRIDAY. That's Friday August 7th. Last chance to dance in this beloved pub.

Advance tickets - http://www.wegottickets.com/event/328924

Admission is the usual price of £4 for members, and £6 for non-members. I won't bother doing new membership cards for this one, but if you'd like to be put on the £4 cheap list, just email cheaplist@howdoesitfeel.co.uk

"Legendary indie club" - NME

"A speakeasy for anyone who suspects that their life is one big Smiths song" - Big Issue London

"The venue reminds of the birthday parties I used to attend when I was a child; in dimly lit halls with naff décor and a little too much space to dance – but I soon realise that this is its charm. It gives the night its character; it’s quaint and the sparkling fairy-lights circling the ceiling give it a certain home-made feel. It has a sense of exclusivity to it, everything seems to have been thought out and cared for; from its hand-crafted membership cards and badges to the stamp on my hand as I walk in which tell me in well-thought out letters that I am ‘LOVED’. How Does It Feel To Be Loved fulfilled everything that I hoped it would be; it was refreshing and fun and its personal touches went a very long way to making it stand out from the crowd. It certainly felt wonderful to be ‘LOVED’." - Pennyblack Music (Nov 2008)
