THE MUSTARD CLUB was launched in 2011 by actor and producer Rebecca Tremain (AKA The Mustard Club’s Angelica Diamond) as an ecletic umbrella for writers, comedians, musicians and other performers to collaborate and perform together under. The Club’s live performance nights took place in London at The Torriano and its varying collective of artists also occupied a live one-hour slot on Resonance 104.4 FM Radio. The eight-part “Gilded Vectors of Disease’ weekly radio series devised and produced by The Mustard Club was also broadcast on Resonance 104.4 FM Radio and iTunes Radio.
The Mustard Club revives the tradition of the popular advertising campaign by Bensons for Colman’s Mustard in the 1920s, which played on promoting membership of an elusive and entirely fictional “Mustard Club”. Accordingly the 2011 Mustard Club operated in stealth mode, never announcing line-ups in advance and maintaining a spontaneous approach to its shows. The Mustard Club continues to create and collaborate on a variety of events and performances, including working closely with The Malaria Centre and London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine to explore continuing issues around Malaria and its place in our history.
