Wanted: Trades Club memories

Monday, 26 June 2023

The Trades Club is organising a centenary event next year. This is an appeal for memories and artifacts for an exhibition.

The Trades Club will be celebrating it's building's centenary in May 2024. While the Trades Club is only in its 40s the building was erected in 1924 and has seen several incarnations throughout its time as the centre of trades union and community activism over that time.

A group has been set up to organise the 100th anniversary celebrations which will take the form of an exhibition, a documentary film, audio recordings, a podcast and almost certainly a bloody good party. The Mayday weekend 2024, appropriately, has been set aside for the celebrations.

Members of the group have set about collecting old videos, photographs, newspaper cuttings, gig guides, reviews and memories of great nights. There will also be a Trades Club Centenary Celebrations Facebook page

If you have any memories or artifacts you'd like to contribute or know of anyone who would be good to speak to/interview on audio or video please get in touch with Dave Boardman - email doddnazedave@gmail.com.
