Brooklands Stadium was the home of Romford FC for almost half a century until 1977, when it was demolished to make way for housing. Join club historians Terry Felton and Linda Rhodes to share memories of watching the Boro there. Or perhaps you live on the Brooklands site now – come along and discover its dramatic history!  

Tickets are £5 each and must be paid for in advance.

Please book early as there are a limited number of seats
and past talks about Romford FC have sold out quickly.
