SPECIAL PUBLICATION: Clubland now on sale!

THE Advertiser’s tribute to clubland in South Yorkshire goes on sale from Friday (10).

The special 56-page publication is packed with fascinating features on many of those for whom working men’s clubs were a big part of their lives.

It comprises memories from ordinary members of the public, artistes’, agents, club officials and staff of the ruling body the CIU.

We speak to stars like John Parr, who began his career in the clubs and went on to worldwide success with St Elmo’s Fire, and John O’Hara — one of the biggest names — who packed venues with his band, The Playboys, for many years.

Clubland also features legendary acts like Ronnie Dukes and Ricki Lee, Duggie Brown, Paul Shane and The Discoes.

The publication will include nostalgic images, like the one above, of Rotherham's club scene through the years.

Many people speak of their fond memories of venues like Greasbrough Social Club, which attracted top names like Matt Monro and Bob Monkhouse in its heyday.

Clubland is an invaluable record of Clubland’s glorious past and essential reading for anyone who has ever stepped into a working men’s club.

It costs £2 and The Advertiser is donating 50p from the sale of every copy to Silverwood Miners’ Welfare towards its appeal for a miners’ memorial.
