The Brudenell Social Club is a members Club in the Hyde Park area of Leeds. It was formed as a gentleman’s social and recreational club in 1913, then developed into a popular social club for activities like cabaret and bingo.

In recent years, it’s role has changed drastically, due to the demographic of the area (Hyde Park) changing to accommodate more and more students. The Brudenell’s large concert room, cheap bar prices, friendly atmosphere and LS6 location have made it extremely popular as a venue for live music and arts events, and an essential part of the live music scene in the city.

The Brudenell cemented its reputation in April 2004, when Franz Ferdinand played their notorious secret gig there, under a pseudonym (The Black Hands). The Brudenell gig is documented on Franz Ferdinand’s DVD. Since then, the Kaiser Chiefs have also organised a secret gig at the venue, and bands like The Cribs played many early shows there.

However the main strength of the Brudenell is its ability to support both small bands with local support, and international touring bands, with ease. The function room is regularly used for capacity-crowd gigs, as well as many smaller gigs and events which are vital to the music and arts scene in Leeds.
