Enjoying the unique surroundings of the Melbourne Savage Club

According to the Melbourne Savage Club’s website, it ‘is one of Australia’s oldest and most atmospheric private members clubs.’ It was established in 1894 and occupies ‘an historic 19th century mansion right in the heart of Melbourne.’ It takes its name from ‘Richard Savage, a free-spirited 17th century English poet.’ Those who have been there will surely come under the spell of surroundings that breathe a rich artistic past.

It is a great privilege granted to Edmund Burke’s Club to be allowed to hold its meetings there and organize such pleasurable occasions as the dinner to commemorate the anniversaries of Magna Carta and the Battle of Waterloo. It is Fr Glen Tattersall’s membership of the Savage that makes all this possible. Gerard Wilson,the President of EBC, would like to convey his warm thanks to Fr Tattersall on behalf of the EBC membership for his generosity.
