12 London Road Social Club
Directory of Co-operatives
The 12 London Road Social Club (12LRSC) is a private members club which runs the bar on the premises in the evenings, so if you want to come for a drink, or attend events in the evening, this is what you need to join by filling in a simple form at the bar and paying £1. It is a co-operative owned and controlled by its members and it depends upon volunteers from the membership to run the bar and organise entertainments. The social club leases the cafe area in the evenings and events include: live music, open mike nights, films, talks, DJs, and the occasional table-football tournament.
Members who want to put something on can pencil in the date on the agenda next to the phone and come to a meeting to discuss the event. The bar is open most Sunday afternoons when sometimes members cook fund-raising dinners for causes in which they are involved. These dinners are advertised in advance.
