Save Our Club
The English Martyrs Parish Centre, Whalley Range, Manchester has been serving the local community for nearly half a century. Built by the people for the people, it has served many generations and evolved into a diverse and popular venue with all sections of the community.
Erected in 1973 as the Parish Centre of the English Martyrs church, 'The Club' catered for the needs of several local schools, and was the heartbeat of a vibrant Catholic community. As its popularity grew, it became home to many local groups including several of the Irish associations dotted around Manchester.
Whether attending a live music night, a bingo session or a birthday, engagement or wedding party, the club has welcomed thousands of folk throughout the years.
The club has played host to countless charity events enabling good causes such as The Christie hospital, St Annes Hospice, Alziemers Society to raise £10,000's for good causes.
Alas, this will all end very soon as the Salford Diocese has decided to close our Club.
Please sign our petition and help breath new life back into this much cherished local venue.
