Not just Beer and Bingo! A talk on the Social History of Working Men’s Clubs
Friends of Stroud Green and Harringay Library are very excited to announce this talk by historian Ruth Cherrington, author of a number of publications on Working Mens Clubs documenting the history and development of the Working Men’s Club and Institute Union.

  The free talk takes place at Stroud Green and Harringay Library, Quernmore Road N4 on October 13th at 3pm. All welcome.

This is fascinating piece of 'history from below' and we're very much looking forward to welcoming Ruth.
