    Default Will be held, take place, etc.

    Sometimes we have an English club held in my university. And I'm having some troubles asking my English teacher about whether it is going to happen or not. How do I ask him correctly? I've always used the variants given below, but I'm not really sure if they sound fine. And can you please suggest something more informal and colloquial to use in such cases? Thank you.

    Will there be an English Club today?
    Will you be conducting an EC today?
    Will you run an EC today?

    Will EC take place today?

    I think your first suggestion sounds best although I think they all get your point across quite adequately. I also don't think any of them are too formal although something a little more colloquial would be 'Is the English Club meeting today?'
