Whether your tastes are smacking someone about in Super Smash Brothers, picking up Scalextric cars off the floor, diving headfirst into a lovingly designed Eurogame, or just drinking very well looked after reasonably priced ale and throwing down some dominoes. You can AND WILL find fun!

We wanted to extend a huge thanks to Bristol rehearsal and recording studio RS Studios, based on Feeder Rd, for their charitable help in lending us a PA system over Christmas!
The PA system in our Large Hall broke just days before our pensioners’ Christmas lunch and our members’ Christmas party – panic! The guys at RS Studios stepped in and loaned us a top-notch system over the festive period. We’re extremely grateful for their help and support.
They provide rehearsal and recording studio space for musicians, plus PA and van hire. Go say hello at:
