The Handlebar Club | London

The Heron is proud to be the home of the internationally renowned Handlebar Club after it was forced to move as a result of the Windsor Castle closing in  2016. They meet on the first Friday of every month.  

 

The club was founded in April 1947 in the dressing room of comedian Jimmy Edwards at The Windmill Theatre in London. There were 10 founder members, including Jimmy Edwards, Raymond Glendenning, and Frank Muir. The minutes of that first meeting is in the Club archives, and it appears that although there was a goodly number of founder members they were outnumbered by chorus girls!

The object of the Club was and still is, to bring together moustache wearers (beards

being strictly prohibited) socially for sport and general conviviality. The aim of the Club was to assist by all means at its disposal, any worthy charity or cause, particularly those devoted to ex-servicemen. This aim still remains today and we have helped particularly with children's charities.  

 

The club's sole requirement for membership is "a hirsute appendage of the upper lip and with graspable extremities" beards are absolutely forbidden.
