Rules for Grub Club are really simple.
Firstly, we do not allow people to take photos or videos on their phones during performances.
Secondly, no dickheads or estate agents or anyone who tells people how much they earn a year with a smile.
Thirdly, it's free entry but many of the acts have travelled to be here so please consider chucking some dosh in the bowl.
Fourth, please whisper if you need to talk during the poets.
Fifth, spread the love, unless an estate agent is spotted on the premises.
