PortcullisEstablished in 1970, the Portcullis Club is the meeting place for the Kenley & Caterham branch of the Royal Air Forces Association.

The Portcullis Clubhouse stands in a corner of the famous Kenley Airfield (Victor Beamish Avenue, Caterham, CR3 5FX) where the 615 Squadron were based during World War 2. They flew their Hurricane and Spitfire aircrafts during the Battle of Britain defending London from bombing raids in 1940-45.

The club houses a comprehensive collection of pictures and artifacts dating back to the 1920’s when the airfield became operational.

The Club membership is made up of local residents and ex-RAF personnel who are keen to preserve the environment in and around the airfield, as well as to raise funds for the RAF Association Welfare to support the RAF family.

We regularly organise events at our club throughout the year. These range from talks and lectures, fundraising events to summer BBQs and jazz evenings.

The club is open 12noon-5pm on Sunday and Club Night is 7pm-11pm every Tuesday. The fully stocked bar serves a range of beers, real ale, soft drinks, and spirits at competitive prices.

Please do not hesitate to contact us via our online form for all your enquries.
