est News on the Club: June 1980

The Club will open on Friday 11th July (not 27th June as previously stated) with a SPECIAL OPENING DISCO and free buffet (9—2). For its first two weeks the club will be open to non-membere, with special rates for those applying to join. There will be discos on Fridays, Saturdays, and Tuesdays and meetings on Wednesdays (see provisional programme below). There will be a Juke box and video games in the lounge and there Will be a quieter reading and television room downstairs where coffee will be served.

At present there is no alcohol allowed: nevertheless people who appear to be under 21 should bring proof of age. This is because we will soon be licensed, and we are starting out in the fully professional way we intend to continue, including a lower age limit of 18 years. A full range of soft drinks and a selection of snacks will be available.

After the first couple of weeks, entry will be restricted to members and their guests only. This means you should join at once so that you will not be refused entry to what will be Scotland's first, and Britain’s best, gay Club. Remember er it takes at least two weeks to become a member.

This is an exciting venture for all of us. Phase 1 including the disco and lounge, is being decorated and equipped to a high standard. Soon the Club facilities will be further enhanced when Phases II and III get under way.
