Glossop Labour Club is an independent socialist club. It is not affiliated to any political party, but is home to people who share a progressive outlook on life. It is one of the oldest Socialist/Labour Clubs in the country. If you enjoy a friendly atmosphere, where you will be unlikely to encounter bigotry or prejudice, if you are a woman who likes the freedom of going out alone, if you are young or old (or in between), Glossop Labour Club is just what you are looking for. Whether you want real ale, draught lager and Guinness, or Fair Trade wine, or if you prefer soft drinks, tea and coffee, we can offer what you most enjoy.

Accessibility: The ground floor of the Club is wheelchair accessible, and there is a ramp down into the garden. We have a wheelchair accessible toilet, and a stairlift to the upstairs rooms.
We are usually open from 8-11 p.m. Tuesday to Friday, but if you just want to pop in for a drink and a chat, Tuesdays and Fridays are the best. On other days, we may not be open, if there is nothing on. Check the bar rota on the Members page to make sure. There are also occasional special events at weekends, and a music session on the 4th Sunday (usually) in each month. Regular activities include a Folk Club on Tuesdays, a Singing Group on Wednesdays (monthly), an informal music session on Fridays, a walking group, and a reading group. Plus a very popular Record Club. The Glossop Folk Train visits us about once a month. A range of other roups use the Club as well. For more details of these activities, and contacts for more information, see the Regular activities page. Additional events are listed on the Special Events page. Information about these and other activities is also displayed on the noticeboard in the Club foyer.
Our central location, and our refurbished and modernised facilities, makes the Glossop Labour Club an ideal venue for a wide range of activities, ranging from music groups to fitness classes. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We have two rooms available for letting for small groups: the larger one (22' x 17') costs £9 per hour, and the smaller one (21' x 13') costs £6 per hour. The main room downstairs, and a pleasant garden area, can be booked, by members only, for special occasions.
For more information about specific activities, use the contact details relating to that activity.
For general enquiries, contact email@example.com or just drop in to see what we have to offer. You will find us at 11-13 Chapel Street, Glossop, SK13 8AT.

The Socialist Network of Clubs, Pubs, and People
Glossop Labour Club participates in a network of Socialist Clubs, including the Red Shed (Wakefield), Clarion House (Pendle), Bolton Socialist Club, the Red and Geen Club (Milnsbridge), and Hebden Bridge Trades Club. Members of these Clubs meet quarterly.
Due to the current Covid 19 public health crisis the club committee have reluctantly decided to close the club for the foreseeable future. This will come into force immediately. We have made this decision with regard to our duty of care to all users of the premises.
Many of our members, and especially our volunteers, fall within age and/or health “at-risk” groups and we see no point in contributing to additional risk by increasing possible exposure to the virus. We will be reviewing things on a week by week basis and hope we will be open again soon.
This has been a difficult decision bearing in mind the costs that we will incur but we believe it is the correct one for the health of all users of the Club. We will be contacting those who have placed bookings with us to explain our closure.
Finally this is a difficult time for the Club and for all of us, but it is in times like this when we as socialists can play a real and important part in our communities.
