MKDivided Country Music Club

We are open to all ages, dancers and listeners – all are welcome.  Come along and sample the special atmosphere at our new venue – The Bletchley and Fenny Stratford Working Mens Club, 1 Chandos Place, Bletchley MK2 2SQ.

In 1973 three people namely Brian Holden, Gordon Ratnage and Melvyn Cameron saw the need for a Country Western Club in the Bletchley area.  The trio started tentatively by holding their first meetings at the “Compass Club” eventually moving on to a more permanent basis at the “Gladiator Club” which was then the home of Bletchley Football Club.  The promise from that day forward was that MKDivided C&W Club would present LIVE Country Music every Sunday fortnight to meet the demand. 

Melvyn moved onto other things at an early stage but Brian and Gordon maintained the fortnightly presentation of the best in UK Country to date.  John and Trisha Case took over the reins in 2008 and this year MKDivided celebrated its 41st year of serving the area and its club members a two weekly dose of LIVE Country Music.

In the past MKDivided have hosted such bands as “The Hillsiders” “Kentucky Country” and the “Alabama Hayriders” to name but a few of the bygone top artists, the enthusiasm has not left the current runners of the club John and Trisha who continue to bring top UK Country entertainment to the club.

MKDivided operated very successfully from the British Rail Sports and Social Club but has now moved to the Bletchley and Fenny Stratford Working Mens Club opposite the Sainsbury’s car park.  If you need any further information or instructions on how to find us please telephone John 07789953485 or on MK 01908 273938 – We will be only too pleased to welcome you.
