Board Game Club’s fourth event is heading back behind the bookcase of Clapham's The Jam Tree in September.

The fourth event will take place on September 18th, returning to The Jam Tree for a second time due to member feedback.

“People who came along to our night in July have been gushing about the venue ever since,” said Board Game Club co-founder, Lesley Singleton.

“It seems it wasn’t just the eclectic mix of party, board, dice and card games which made them smile; it was the sumptuous, secretive setting and awesome ambience it provided. They were as enchanted as we were by the mysterious bookcase bar and The Jam Tree team has been so supportive of our night that we’ve decided to return for a second run.

“We’ll be refreshing the games menu yet again with a fusion of the retro, the new, the childish and the controversial, taking on board the comments we’ve had from guests both on and after the night.

"We love that our members are starting to give us really valuable feedback about the games we make available for them to try and it’s interesting watching the group evolve and really put the games through their paces.”

The Jam Tree is also supporting the September event by offering all guests 50 per cent off their food bill on the night.

Board Game Club co-founder Peter Jenkinson added: “It’s brilliant that The Jam Tree is getting right behind Board Game Club and will be helping us spread the word locally too so that we can open up the night to an even bigger crowd.

“And even though we’ll continue to tour our grown-up games night throughout the Capital and beyond, it feels like we’ve found a bit of a spiritual home with these guys. They, like us, are passionate about creating an evening with a flawless blend of atmosphere, people and games.

"It’s a great backdrop for a ridiculously fun, and often raucous, evening.”
