The objects of the club are to:
- Encourage Members to take an active interest in civic affairs, and to
- Organise social functions and to arrange lectures and visits of general interest
The Club is non-political, non-denominational and non-sectarian.
Bread Street Ward surrounds the precincts to the north, east and south of St Paul's Cathedral and, in common with most Wards in the City, it operates a Ward Club as its social arm. Since the original qualification for membership of the Bread Street Ward Club was that members should have worked or lived in the Ward, the vast majority of them are Bank of England staff or pensioners who had worked in the Ward in New Change. However, in common with most Ward Clubs, Bread Street has widened its membership requirements so that anyone who is interested in the history and affairs of the Ward or the City of London in general can join.
The Club organises a wide range of social functions, lectures and visits to places of interest. Past Programmes have included visiting the Old Bailey, a lecture on the Leaning Tower of Pisa given by Professor Burland, who was responsible for stabilising the Tower, and formal guided visits to such as the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and the Whitechapel Bell Foundry as well as a private viewing of the Queen's Gallery at Buckingham Palace.
The current subscription (2016) is £10 per year. It is normally collected by Standing Order and is reviewed each year - no joining fee.
