January 2023 – Nice and Spice

Our first visit for 2023 was a unique one. Set inside the Leicester Railwaymens Club & Institute on the corner of Leicester Street and East Park Road. On entering, it feels like you are walking into a bygone era, a huge club with reception desks. The building is vast with a function room, club room, darts, skittles, snooker, and a well-stocked and well ran bar. Being a club, we were asked to sign in at the bar. Football was on, and there were a few people in tonight. I imagined what it might have been like in the 70s and 80s full most nights. It was already great to experience this unique club.
