Admin HistoryMaidenhead Constitutional Club was formed in 1893 after a series of provisional meetings. It was initially a politically-based gentlemen's club for Conservatives, the original objects being the 'promotion of constitutional principles, and social intercourse among the Conservatives and Unionists of Maidenhead'. The local MP was often a member; in 1922 one of the club's vice-presidents was elected to Parliament. From 1962 a new form of limited membership was available to non-Conservatives, and by the time the club closed in 1993 the political links had been dropped.
