Glossop Labour Club is an independent social 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, 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. 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.
Visit the exhibition on the struggle for Women's Rights, on loan from the Working Class Library in Salford. It can be seen upstairs in the Club, at any time when the Club is open.
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.
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.
