Flanders commemorates the First World War

Talbot House

Talbot House

The ‘Every Man’s Club’ at Talbot House is one of the most evocative sites of the Great War. Founding padre 'Tubby' Clayton catered for over half a million soldiers. Rank did not matter, everyone was and still is treated equally. Soldiers could borrow books, play the piano,… in short, become human again. The unique spirit can perhaps best be experienced in the newly renovated 'Upper Room' or Chapel. Next door, a life-sized album on 'Life Behind the Lines' and a 'Concert Party' take you back in time. Experience the true atmosphere of war years in this ‘Home away from Home’. The kettle is already
