About Us:

Standing in the centre of Madeley, ‘The Anstice Working Mens Club and Institute’, was donated to the community of Madeley in 1869 as a memorial to Mr John Anstice, a prominent and well respected mine owner and philanthropist.

Over the years The Anstice has been the host of the local Library, Lloyds Bank, a Dentist and provided a place for improvement (education) of workers, with the square outside being the gathering place for all public events and announcements, such as coronations and regimental parades.

During the 20th century the Working Men’s Club became well known for its outstanding Ballroom, according to some ‘the best outside of Blackpool’, and there are still numerous Madeley couples who courted at The Anstice.

Membership of the club peaked in the early 1970’s at almost 3,000.

Sadly, with rising costs for substantial repair and updating of such a large building, the Committee of the Club decided in 2014 to cease operating and handed the building over to a Liquidator.

Immediately local people started a Save the Anstice campaign on Facebook; with over 900 supporters in two weeks. From that came the Anstice Community Trust (ACT), who with the support of passionate local volunteers, are now raising funds to restore the Anstice to her former glory, putting it back at the heart of Madeley for the benefit of the local community & surrounding areas.

We need your help so we can continue with the restoration and our final goal to have The Anstice fully restored, up and running providing a place for everyone to enjoy for Arts, Education, Sport, Health, Family and Friendship.

Thank you for your support and good luck!

Yours sincerely

Mrs Melanie McCarthy
