The Frat - Our Second Home

Thursday, 8th August, 2019

Antonietta Pigozzo fondly remembers the days when her young friends would ride their motorcycles to her parents’ Clifton home for social gatherings.

Other times were enjoyed at her aunty’s Balgownie home for an afternoon of dancing. It was the 1950s and dancing to the beat of vinyl records had become a social event. Now aged 80, Antonietta recently shared memories of when the children of Italian migrants would attend social events and help create fun and friendship through The Fraternity Club.

Taylor Swift Tribute Show

Wednesday, 13th April, 2016

Dear Taylor Fans,

The Club listened to your feedback following the Taylor Swift show and acknowledge the show was too short. We had contracted a longer performance which we are currently working through with the promoter.

As a gesture of goodwill the club will be issuing a free Katy Perry ticket to everyone who attended the Taylor Swift show at the Clubs expense.

We aim to always exceed your expectations and hope this gesture goes some way to rectifying what we agree was a very short performance today.

Further instructions will be sent to your email and phone contacts in the coming days.

Thanks for your ongoing support, The Fraternity Team
