Clubland – How the Working Men’s Club Shaped Britain

8th June 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


From the event website:

We’re delighted to welcome Yorkshire born author Pete Brown to Garforth Library to discuss his latest book Clubland: How the Working Men’s Club Shaped Britain. Named as a BBC Radio 4 book of the week earlier this year, Brown’s enlightening, affectionate and intoxicating history of the British institution of Working Men’s Clubs traces a path from its founding by a teetotal minister, to its heyday, when more than 7 million Brits were members.

Join us for a warm-hearted and entertaining evening, where our lively guide will take you on a fascinating journey, exploring the untold story of an often-misunderstood cultural phenomenon, including tales from Garforth’s very own Working Men’s Club.
