Founding, function and history

The Music and Variety Club was established circa 1954. The club was involved in providing local theatre entertainment in the city, such as musicals.

In the early 1950's, they were joined by the Dramatic Society of East London, East London Technical College Drama Club, East London Schools Music and Drama Association and The Children’s Theatre to raise funds toward the building of what was to be the Guild Theatre.

The Music and Variety Club and the East London Technical College Drama Club amalgamated on 29 June 1962 with the Arts Theatre Club being its new name.
