Researching a short history of the Television Centre Club bar

Picture of Television Centre BBC Club from the 1980s

The Television Centre BBC Club bar closed its doors for the last time on Thursday 28 March 2013.

The next day I thought I’d do a bit of research on the history of the bar.

Amazingly, a quick visit to Google revealed there was no text on the history of the bar (there isn’t even a Wikipedia page!) and only one historical picture I could find (the one above, which is from!)

I’m therefore in the process of pulling together a short history of the TC Club bar.

This will not be five volume book set (!), but a (probably fairly long) post on this site.

If anyone has any pictures, facts, stories, memories, etc relating to the history of the TC Club bar, I’d be grateful if you could drop me a line with the subject line ‘A short history of the TC Club bar’.

At the moment there’s also a lively discussion on this subject on Facebook, if you’re that way inclined.
