The Hull Adelphi Club 1st opened its doors in October 1984 and is fast approaching its 37th Birthday during 2021. Proprietor Paul Jackson bought the building after viewing several others in his search for setting up a live music venue for local, national and international artists after quitting his job at a local factory to follow his dream. 89 de Grey Street had been a working men’s club previous to Paul taking over and the place had its 1st alcohol licence granted in 1923 with the venue being called ‘The Victory Club’ serving mostly ex-servicemen after WW1. In 2019 The Adelphi became a CIC and celebrated it’s birthday with an appearance by Fatboy Slim… nearly 35 years after Norman had signed his 1st recording deal on the stage of the club whilst with The Housemartins. During May-June 2021 the Adelphi is hosting a series of limited capacity recovery gigs called, ‘The Victory Club’.
