Widcombe Social Club is a non-profit community focused venue catering classes and events for both local and regional groups. We are a registered charitable organisation and host various community events throughout the year - we also work in partnership with local charities to provide a space from which to plan, network, and fund-raise for their causes.
The WSC has been an important part of the area's heritage since it's inception in 1899 - originally found at 25 Claverton Buildings on Widcombe's high-street as the 'Widcombe Workmen’s Club', it officially became 'Widcombe Social Club' after moving to its new and current premises in 1970.
After a multi-million pound redevelopment deal was completed in 2012, the face of the Social Club (and with it Widcombe Hill) was changed forever - re-opening in 2016, the 'New Club' is a light and modern venue which still holds true to its historic roots, retaining its membership system in a more inclusive form and acting as a hub for community-ran events and providing entertainment with local audiences in mind.
