New tent in Lancashire


Ben Walsh Eastwood has contacted us. Ben and his dad have set up a new tent -
Brats oasis  #324.

Ben says, "We are holding our grand opening on the 16th June 2016 (Stan Laurel's birthday). We currently have a membership of 150+ and rising. We are holding our first meeting at our club house, The Short Homers WMC (men only).

Ben Jnr and Ben Snr say, "Having a wide range of active members ages 18-89+ we have a massive following for the Boys (Stan & Ollie) so decided to start a tent of our own, an Oasis in our busy lives."

They say they named their tent 'Brats' for several reasons:

1) We're a bunch of mischievous kids (often described as a playschool that sells beer).

2) It's our favourite film.

3) The only thing better than one Stan & Ollie is TWO Stans & Ollies.

The tent's postal address is the Short Homers WMC as above. Please mark clearly, "FAO the 'BRATS' " You can contact Grand Sheik Ben on mobile number 07976587510 or email him at

The Brats Tent is based at a Working Men's Club called the Short Homers WMC.

The address is 2 Midland Street, Nelson, Lancashire. BB9 7RJ.

The club (established in 1919) is a strictly MEN ONLY club, so the Brats Tent has to be the same.
