The legacy and traditions of Bermuda’s social clubs will come under the spotlight next week when the Department of Culture hosts its February edition of the Bermudian Heartbeats Lecture Series

Taking place next Wednesday at St Mary’s Church Hall in Warwick, the lecture titled “More Than ‘Just’ Sports – Social Clubs: Their Importance to Bermuda’s History and Future – Part I Western Clubs” will feature guest speakers and representatives from Somerset Cricket Club, Warwick Workmen’s Club, Southampton Rangers Sports Club and PHC.

The Government is keen to encourage as many people as possible to come along and share their experiences to underline the important role these clubs play in the lives of many in Bermuda

“We encourage interested members of the public to join us for an evening exploring the past, present, and future of Bermuda’s western social clubs,” a government spokesman said.

“Bermuda’s social clubs are best known for their sports teams, but their significance and impact in Black Bermudian history stretch far beyond the boundaries of any oval or field. So, please come along and share your own memories and stories about these clubs.”

The lecture gets under way at 6pm and is free to the public. To book your tickets, visit the Department of Culture website. For further information call 292-1681 or email cghay@gov.bm
