The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall were treated to displays by ABA boxers, kickboxers and dancers during their visit. Prince Charles gave a speech about Youth United in the North West to representatives of different voluntary organisations working with young people. The Prince and Duchess looked at the clubs archive including a letter from Baden Powell confirming his intention to officially open the club in January 1904.
Everyone at the club felt the visit was a great success and showed the Prince’s interest in the varied opportunities the club offers to young people.
