The Garrick, London 1903
The Garrick Club is a gentlemen's club in the heart of London founded in 1831. It is one of the oldest, highly esteemed and exclusive members club in the world and since its conception has catered to members such as Charles Kean, Henry Irving, Laurence Olivier and John Gielgud. From the literary world came writers such as Charles Dickens, H. G. Wells, J. M. Barrie, A. A. Milne, and Kingsley Amis.
As of 2016, the club has around 1,400 members (with a seven-year waiting list) including many of the most distinguished actors and men of letters in the United Kingdom. New candidates must be proposed by an existing member before election in a secret ballot, the original assurance of the committee being “that it would be better that ten unobjectionable men should be excluded than one terrible bore should be admitted”.
The Garrick Club is also home to major collections of art, with more than 1,000 paintings, drawings and sculptures on display. It also houses a theatrical library. Women are still banned from being members.
