Promoting Creative Self-Expression Since 1966
The UFO Club was a famous but shortlived UK underground club in London during the 1960s, venue for many of the top bands during that time.
Remembering the Original UFO Club - 1966 to 67 - London
The UFO Club was founded by John Hopkins (usually known as "Hoppy") and Joe Boyd.. in 1966. Pink Floyd were the house band for a time. There were liquid light shows and fantasy films from dusk till dawn.
Unfortunately the club was short-lived.. and its free spirit was never welcomed by the establishment.. who wanted it closed down.. because it was corrupting youth.. into living peacefully..
UFO will always remain in our memories as being legendary... and it only cost 10 shillings to get in..
