The home of the Norwich working men’s club since the 1940s, Keir Hardie Hall is up for sale, with a guide price of £325,000.

The once popular club in St Gregory’s Alley once boasted an interesting mix of live events, from salsa dancing to reggae. The club once had 1,000 members, but the numbers have fallen to just 300.

Bryan Baxter, auctioneer with the Auction House, said the club could no longer survive financially and would be sold at auction at Dunston Hall from 11am on July 23.

He said there had been a limited amount of interest in the property so far, but added: “It’s early days and we’re expecting more interest later. The club’s not been used as much as it was. There’s just not enough money to run it.”

There was no one at the club yesterday to comment.
