The Clubhouse Night on 24 March 2018 was the culmination of the year’s activity. For one night it brought the two streets to life in unexpected ways, celebrating and sharing the project with the wider community.
Located in a garage lock-up in between the two streets, there was an exhibition of film stills on garage doors, short films were projected into empty garage spaces and there was a resident run-café with a residents’ recipe book created with artist Jan Uprichard. The main feature of the evening was the Clubhouse performance. This walking tour presented film vignettes outside the homes where the films were created, and was performed by young participating residents. Films were projected onto walls and stairwells, bringing the street to life after dark.

Over 130 residents have taken part in the project to date and a number of resident-led activities have developed from the project. To date these include an annual Sports Day, a regular inter-generational football match and regular planting of the community garden. The final film will be screened in summer 2018 and the next phase of the Clubhouse project will begin in early summer 2018.
