Every Man's Club: Evening Experience

Get a taster of century-old entertainment and experience how soldiers relaxed at the Every Man’s Club during the First World War.

The realities of the First World War were tough on soldiers, physically and mentally. In 1915, British Army chaplain Tubby Clayton created a place where soldiers could escape to: The Every Man’s Club. Located in Poperinghe, Belgium, the club became known as Talbot House and hosted a variety of entertainers. Regardless of rank, all soldiers were welcome.

Following the success of the Waterloo Pop Up screening last year, this year we present a Pop Up Every Man’s Club. A programme of music-hall style entertainment and activities will offer an experience of what life was like at Talbot House.

The Evening Experience includes:

  • A free beer, wine or soft drink on arrival*
  • Learn about the history of Talbot House with its founder – Tubby
  • Enjoy a free snack of egg and chips
  • Be entertained by a Cabaret show
  • Hear stories about soldiers from the First World War
  • See a screening of the Happy Hoppers film

* Additional drinks can be purchased.



Bookings for tickets closed on Friday 18 November 2016 at 5.00pm. However, door sales will also be available.
