The Montague Arms

Frog Morris produced over 100 live shows in the Montague Arms between 2007 and 2012. The nights were an eccentric mix of art, music and comedy.

One moment the audience are laughing along to a comedy routine, the next they are hushed to silence for a performance art piece or poetry reading, the next moment they are handed song sheets and asked to sing along with a musician. Past evenings have seen copulating ghosts, masquerades, men dressed as eggs, laughing bears, witchcraft, singing cats, drunken pirates, orchestras, maths lectures, mediaeval ceremonies, under-sea gods and even a visit by Santa's sinister brother Uncle Christmas. The acts are usually curated together using a different theme each month. Theme nights have included Science Fiction, Music Hall, Super Heroes, Witches, Cowboys and the Sea.

The evening takes places in The Montague Arms, which was voted number one pub by The Rough Pub Guide : A Celebration of the Great British Boozer. Once you get in side it is easy to see why. Montague Arms is a venue stuffed full of stuffed animals and other odd items collected over its long history. The same family have run the pub for over forty years and they can tell tales of east-end gangsters, blue comedians, punks, cockney sing-along, prog rock, coach trips and dancing girls who weren’t what they said they were. They also serve a decent pint of beer. You won’t find a boozer with atmosphere like this anymore.

The pub sadly closed in 2012 bringing an end to the shows. The Montague Arms is sorely missed many. Tall tales of what went on in that old bar will continue to be recounted over many a pint of ale for years to come.
