About The Sulgrave Club

Club History

The inspiration for providing a youth club for boys and young men within the local community was Edward De Stein.  He was the founder member of a ‘City of London Brokers’, which through his leadership became an established and successful firm.  During the 1920’s De Stein and a group of like minded friends purchased a property in Sulgrave Road and founded the ‘Sulgrave Club’.  In 1936 the Club moved to its current premises in Goldhawk Road where it has remained to the present day.  In 1938 an extension incorporating the main hall and gym were added to the rear of the house. 
For the next fifty or so years it was operated as a Boys Club affiliated to the then ‘London Federation of Boys Clubs’ and grant aided by the Local Authority.  Edward De Stein created the Sulgrave Charitable Trust which is one of the main supporters of the Sulgrave Club.  He became “Sir” Edward De Stein in recognition of his charitable work. 
During this period the Club was used by a number of famous names including, Tony Hancock, Sid James, The Who, Les Ferdinand, Jim Davidson, Frankie Howard and also as rehearsal space for shows including by ‘Dixon of Dock Green’ and ‘The Bill’.

Current Provision

The Sulgrave Club has provided a variety of activities for young people from its current location, although keeping up with current trends means that these activities have changed considerably over the years. 

Children & young people aged 8 to 19 years have access to the following:

Junior Youth Club - operates on a Saturday afternoon (Term Time) for children in school years 3 to 7.

Senior Youth Club - operates Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evening for young people in school years 7 and above.

A School Holiday Activity Programme is available for both Junior & Senior members as well as 2 residential weekends each year (subject to funding).

In September 2013, The Sulgrave Club began the delivery of a Junior and Senior Youth Club at the Addison Youth Club located some 1.5 miles away in W14.  These sessions take place each Thursday (Term Time)
