Membership of The Union Club

Bookings may only be made by using the dedicated email in the RTS Members Area and all visits to the club must be pre-booked with bookings being made within seven days of the visit – phone bookings and walk-ins are not permitted.

The Union Club was set up in 1993 by ex-North Sea oil rigger Pete Cross and Chef Carolyn Dawson, and both are (for their sins) still at the helm of the Club today. Opening a private members club had been a long held dream for the duo, and they took the plunge after buying a dilapidated building at 50 Greek Street, Soho.

Devon and Cornwall - A TV success story

Devon and Cornwall - one of the most beautiful parts of the UK but in the past perhaps not the first port of call for TV programme makers and commissioners. Lockdown has changed all that. Channel 4’s Devon and Cornwall series made by True North has been pulling in record audiences of over 2 million for the first in series.  South West indies have felt the benefit with a raft of commissions with series like Twofour’s Cornwall and Devon Walks with Julia Bradbury  featuring on ITV .
