Groucho Club and Child Sexual Abuse

The Groucho Club is a private members club, set up in 1985 whose members are mainly drawn from publishing, media, entertainment and arts industries. [7]

In 2010 the Groucho Clubs web forum was found to have hundreds of web pages and links dedicated to gross and indecent material of young children [6].  This was reported to Metropolitan Police and CEOP but nothing appeared to be done. [6] Googles cache pages of the evidence also kept being removed.

Links have been made between Charles Napier of the Paedophile Information Exchange and the Groucho Club; Jeremy Hunt Health Secretary and sugar daddy JHJ Lewis of  Groucho Club; church premises nearby being used by men associated with the Groucho club to make child porn films ; and surveillance cameras being used in the club for improper purposes [2].

There is the suggestion that various members used to snort cocaine and that there were extra surveillance cameras, initially vehemently denied by the Groucho Club, but proved to be present after a failed libel case by the Groucho Club  [10]. If this was the case, the cctv could also be used to collect evidence other indiscretions. This evidence, in the wrong hands, could be used for blackmail purposes.

The Groucho club was thought to be the organising centre of celebrities who disapproved of the activities of the now defunct News of the World – a Rupert Murdoch newspaper. It has also been suggested in the comments section [12][10] that “I read this as Hunt has something, acquired from the Groucho, on Cameron, hence the promotion…”.

The Groucho Club was recently the object of a static protest from Child Protection campaigners who were asking the Groucho Club to come clean on the Child Abuse allegations.


This appeared to be much to the consternation of various grouchy people who emerged from the club.

The Groucho Club private members forum had 42,000 members, 900,000 posts and was operating for almost a year with children on sale for sex. The forum also had thousands of posts, photographs and videos of young children. However, the child abuse network operating on the Groucho Clubs forum was covered up. [8]

The Police failed to investigate and despite it being reported over 20 times did nothing for months while the evidence was destroyed. After a number of Politicians were informed by the Investigative Journalist Tyrone D Murphy about the failure of the Police, a report was then issued to any politicians who queried the Polices failure to act. A report was issued by the Police absolving the Groucho Club and the Police from any wrongdoing. This report was the subject of an IPCC investigation  which upheld that the report was inaccurate and that no action would be take against the officer concerned because he was ill and would be retiring soon. [8]

“The Reason for this static protest is that many Anti Child Abuse organizations, charities, groups and parents are appalled that the systemic abuse of children over many years can simply be covered up allowing paedophiles and networks to move on without prosecution”. [8]

Calls have been made for Matt Hobbs, MD of the Groucho Club and John Henry James Lewis OBE, Chairman of the Groucho Club to come clean about the Child Pornography on the Groucho Club members forum or the evidence is to be released into the public domain soon [9].  An update will be issued to this post when it is.

    Cathy I was on your blog and saw the Groucho Club post. I can provide some info for you from personal knowledge. Groucho manager gave me 2 tickets to a Bruce Weber “movie”. Friend and I walked out. “Movie” was little boys filmed from waist down. No faces. Just little boys in shorts. The entire film was that. We left after 45 mins because it never changed. The who’s who of London was there because Bruce Weber is a huge celeb photographer – does all the Armani, Calvin Klein ads etc
    We went to the afterparty and were first to arrive because we’d walked out of the screening. Weber himself was there to welcome us and asked what we thought of the movie. Not knowing who he was at the time, we told him it was terrible. The look on his face… we realized he was THE guy.
    This was years ago. We were very young and clueless.
    Weber is a member of groucho.

  10. The Groucho Club, I also reported the truth: a respected hack confided in me not long ago, naming a senior member of the royal household as the joint owner of the Groucho’s hastily removed paedophile exchange website domain.
