The Steamers

The Steamers is an all-male drinking club in Keble College, Oxford University.

It has been reported that one of its early members was the Labour politician Ed Balls.[1] It was during his time with the club that Ed Balls was pictured in a Nazi uniform.[2]


The origins of the club are no longer known. It was disbanded in the mid-1980s, but reformed in 1995, and became active again until membership declined around 2013/2014.
