Polish Social Club – Documentary photography by Czesław Siegieda

Documentary photographer Czesław Siegieda recorded life in a Polish community in England from 1970 to the 1980s.

The Polish Social Club located at True Lovers Walk, Loughborough, was founded in 1966. It became the centre of social and cultural life for the Polish community in exile in Loughborough and nearby villages. It served to provide a home for Poles to meet and build friendships, as a place where Polish culture and history was kept alive and where Polish identity and independence were maintained.
