About – The Beautiful Octopus Club

The Beautiful Octopus Club Festival is back and will be taking place online throughout November! Over 4 weeks and across 8 events – it will be a chance for everyone to come together for a one of a kind experience. Expect music, art, DJs, radio and more! 

Created by Heart n Soul in 1995, The Beautiful Octopus Club is London’s longest running inclusive club night that’s free and open to everyone. The event celebrates learning disability culture and is a place where people with and without learning disabilities can come together in a shared space enjoying a range of arts, culture and music.

The event has been taking over the Royal Festival Hall for the last ten years, reaching 3,000 people every year. It was due to immerse 3 floors of the Wellcome Collection this April until the Covid-19 pandemic changed the script. 

The Beautiful Octopus Club Festival is going to keep the essence of what makes the club so unique. Plus all the events have been inspired by work that our artists have created throughout the pandemic. They’ve shown lockdown has been no barrier to their creativity and have developed exciting new ways to create new art and connect with each other.

Now we want you to be part of it!
