The one and only reference for this club was found in issue 6 of the "Broadside '69", advertised as a brand new club called the "Boggery Folk Factory" at the Opposite Lock Club in Gas Street, just off Broad Street. This was another enterprise by Jasper Carrot and Les Ward, in conjunction with the Opposite Lock Club following on from the success of the Boggery. The opening night was on Tuesday June 3rd 1969 and featured Al Stewart, with support Colin Scott. Their guest the following week was Jake Thackray supported by "an outstanding group from London" called Magna Carta. No other references to this club have currently been found.
