There`s only one Red Shed, but there are other clubs out there.  A number of them have "Labour", "Trades" or some such description as part of their names.  This may indicate that they had roots in the labour movement, but most of them nowadays are purely social clubs, with little or no political side to their activities.  The BBC reported on this recently (around the time of the 2019 general election) showing precious little of its alleged commitment to "balanced reporting".  However, there are some clubs that have kept the Red Flag flying.  A group of these in the north of England have made moves to strengthen ties between them, as reported in the Morning Star.
In August 2017 we established the Network of Socialist Clubs, which meets semi-regularly to exchange ideas.  The network is a very informal association with no individual membership.  Members of any of these clubs will be very welcome at any of the others.

[Clubs Net] In addition to the Red Shed, current other members of the network are:

•  Glossop Labour Club
•  The Trades Club, Hebden Bridge
•  Bolton Socialist Club
•  The Clarion Club, Pendle

Also - not formally part of our network - but thanks to the magic of the internet, we have some links to other like-minded organisations further afield:

•  Whitstable Labour Club (Kent)
•  Peoples` Voice Cafe (New York City)

We would like to expand the network if there are other clubs out there that share our commitment to progressive politics.
