Just as we were getting to be really good at all things Covid-secure we've now been put back into lockdown until futher notice....So sadly all of the events we had planned for the early new year are now on hold.   See below for details.  And if you want to keep in touch with what we will be hosting and organising as and when the Covid restrictions are lifted, make sure you're on our mailing list - send us an email here.

Although we can't host any events or gigs, we can still accommodate allowable activities (for example childcare or support groups) but the organisers of these activities will let their users know about their particular situation.  If you have any requirements for hiring spaces as an organiser of an allowable activity please just send us an email message here

Meanwhile - stay safe, stay well - and here's to a much improved and happy new year!

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. Find out more about our history here!


Yes, we are a dog friendly venue!
