Finally, after some months, the BBC Club in London, now called BBC Club W1 @ Media Café is open. Its relocation from Wogan House to the Media Café, inside the entrance to New Broadcasting House, was opened by Tim Davie on 26th April. The Committee will be checking it out during our next in-person meeting so will report back. It is open 8am-11pm Tuesday to Friday but closes at 9pm on Monday. The Media Café will on occasion host Radio Theatre Audiences and BBC events. BBC People will still be able to enjoy all that the BBC Club has to offer at the same time in an exclusive separate area.

The BBC Club is in its centenary year and there will be a BBC Club Party in June 2024 to celebrate both the opening of our new Club and BBC Club’s 100th Birthday.

If you are a retired or Alumni member of the BBC Club you will need to be issued with a BBC Club Pass at LBH Reception on each visit. Please ensure that you have photo ID with you. BBC Club Passes allow access to Media Café ONLY, and do not allow access to other locations in LBH. BBC Club members can sign in up to three guests per visit. The rate for Retired members of the BBC is £3 per month collected from the pension payroll. If you do not live in London and can’t benefit from visiting W1 then the Club’s online offering is worth visiting to discover what other events, activities and offers you could take advantage of.
