The building at the bottom of Sunny Hill was converted from the old Beehive pub and opened in 1902 as the Milford Institute.
A Reading Room and Institute had previously been housed in the Mill, but George Herbert Strutt wanted a separate building where residents could meet ‘for recreation, amusement, and instruction.’
The club also has its own Jukebox packed full of good songs plus a pool table, dart board and a full size snooker table upstairs.
The club also has free WIFI – the code is on the notice board.
Live sport (Sky and BT Sport) – The Sunshine Club is home to all live sport on the big screen – everything from Premier League football to the Six Nations. When Derby County are televised and playing away, there’s a terrific atmosphere.
There is a Meat Raffle every Saturday night, which includes:- 1st a joint of meat | 2nd a joint of meat | 3rd a breakfast pack or BBQ pack.
