59 Club

The 59 Club was originally founded as a youth club in 1959 by Father John Oates, at The Eton Mission, St. Mary of Eton Church, Hackney, London, but it was following visits by his colleague the late Father Bill Shergold, on his motorcycle, to the then notorious Ace Cafe, and meeting with the “Ton Up Kids”, that in 1962, a service and blessing of the bikes was held at the church.
This set the 59 Club, a registered church charity, on the road to becoming a legend. Seemingly overnight, from the moment of this church service, thousands of young motorcyclists joined the 59 Club and, to the sound of rock n’ roll, it became a motorcycle club which, from 1964, was to be ever identified and associated with the Rockers!
