59 Club & Ace - into the future 30/01/2015

The 59 Club was originally founded as a youth club in 1959
by Father John Oates, at The Eton Mission, St. Mary of Eton
Church, Hackney, London, but it was following visits by his
colleague the late Father Bill Shergold, on his motorcycle, to the
then notorious Ace Cafe, and meeting with the “Ton Up Kids”,
that in 1962, a service and blessing of the bikes was held at the
church. This set the 59 Club, a registered church charity, on
the road to becoming a legend.

Seemingly overnight, from the moment of this church service,
thousands of young motorcyclists joined the 59 Club and, to the
sound of rock n’ roll, it became a motorcycle club which, from
1964, was to be ever identified and associated with the Rockers!
Fifty years on, and having worked together from the very first
Ace Cafe Reunion of 1994, through to the full re-opening of the
Ace in 2001, the sharing of history, heritage, community and
common values, has brought the 59 Club and Ace Cafe London
ever closer together, and with the advent of ever increasing
interest in these two now legendary and iconic institutions, both
have agreed to team up.

Today, lead by motorcycling vicar Father Scott Anderson, the
management team of Club Leaders have partnered with Ace
Cafe London who will provide full support for the 59 Club with
membership administration, marketing, regalia and other
areas of Ace expertise, with a view to assisting and ensuring a
long and successful future for the Club into the 21st century
and beyond.
