Kit-Cat Club

The Kit-Cat Club was an early 18th-century London club with strong political and literary associations, committed to the furtherance of Whig objectives. Before then, it may have been a secret society active in furthering the Glorious Revolution of 1689.

The Kit-Cat Club is known today as an early 18th-century social gathering-point in London for culturally and/or politically prominent Whigs: writers like William Congreve, John Vanbrugh, and Joseph Addison, and politicians like the Duke of Marlborough, Charles Seymour, the Earl of Burlington, Thomas Pelham-Holles, and Sir Robert Walpole.
