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.

What Ireland is Watching

Here in Ireland we're not going anywhere just now and we are watching television more often. The panel members for this event have insights to share with us about what people in Ireland are watching on television. Just as the ways we are viewing have become diverse the role of audience measurement has become more challenging.
