The Windermere Club



The Windermere Club

Tommy's residency in London that could just have made him!

Location: 189 Regent Street, W1R

Description: Tom wasn't at his best on TV. You had to see Tom on the stage because then he was really good. He could grab an audience like no one. He was too big for TV.... Eric Sykes

It was during 1948 to 1951, that Tommy Cooper played every first-class London nightclub - and every time the bookings were extended. He was so popular every club in the capital wanted a piece of him.

And so to this very spot, the then establishent called the 'Windermere Club' in Regent Street - where he was a great success.

From there he then got booked at the Collins Music Hall and beyond.
