The Social Club
Jo Knowles and Alison Luck manage club entertainment at the Greenhithe and Swanscombe Royal British Legion (RBL).
Club entertainment ranges from a mix of live music, discos (some themed) and the occasional karaoke evening. All events are advertised in the club on the social section notice board and via Facebook (and on the website - obviously).
Twice yearly we hold a special 'Ladies Nights' - featuring a fantastic Drag Act and some nice young men who ‘dance’ for the delectation and delight of the audience. These events have proven to be very popular!
Easter and Halloween are marked by our annual children’s’ parties with lots of fun, games and sweets! The Easter Bunny joins us at the former and we present great prizes for the spookiest costumes at the latter - plus we hold a popular pumpkin carving competition. The Halloween fun continues into the evening with a DJ and a chance for the adults to dress up as well.
Most entertainment at the RBL is free - with an occasional ticket night (such as the ladies nights and adult cabarets). But ticket prices are always kept to a minimum and all monies raised are ploughed back into the club entertainment fund.
Christmas is a special time for members’ children and grandchildren with Santa visiting our Christmas Party with a gift for every child. This event is free and something everyone looks forward to - party food and squash are supplied for the children and they always go home exhausted after all the games and silly Christmas antics. Those with more stamina can stay on with their parents for a Christmas Carol sing-a-long later in the evening.
The Branch Committee, with the support of the club entertainment team, arranges the firework night, Armed Forces Day, annual Poppy Dance and other one off events.
Many different events are being planned, but they can only take place with the support of RBL members and local community.
Always remember, Alison and Jo are approachable, rarely bite and are open to ideas that will help make our events something people want to join and have fun.
