From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Association of Conservative Clubs is an organisation associated with the Conservative Party in the United Kingdom. It represents and provides support to the largest association of political clubs in the country estimated at 1,100.

The Association of Conservative Clubs was formed in 1894 and its objects are to assist and encourage the formation of Clubs and to support the principles and aims of The Conservative Party.

Such clubs can vary from Conservative Working Men's Clubs to more prestigious clubs known as Constitutional Clubs. Sometimes Conservative Clubs are called Unionist Clubs or Beaconsfield Clubs (after Lord Beaconsfield). These clubs can offer a wide range of facilities, including snooker, bar games and entertainment.

Some clubs have been under increasing pressure to change their rules to allow full membership to women, generally this has been resisted.
