    I know so many people who were there that night (or at least SAID they were there). I spent a lot of time at the Dungeon but thankfully I wasn’t there on that eventful night, probably because I’d seen the Drifters many times before and I wasn’t allowed to go to all-nighters in any case :(

    Incidentally it was by googling Dungeon Club that led me to Nottstalgia 6 years ago! 

    Me too Lizzie .....as you know I have documented the dungeon club days along with most of the Nottingham clubs and my research led me to nottstalgia .....we now are involved with the reunion group which has brought so many of us together again .....I was there on the night of the raid but I think that was my last visit as the beachcomber and boat clubs became more current

    Been in the Lincolnshire Poacher tonight to listen to a friend of ours and his mate performing, (Baron Lewis) they apparently have live music in there on a Sunday night.  We’d never heard him singing before and we’re pleasantly surprised, it was a great night.  Walked there and back from home as it’s not too far but slipped over on the icy pavement when I was nearly home, landed on my bum and hurt my wrist. It’s not swollen but really painful right now.  Hopefully it’ll be improved in the morning!

    hope you feeling better Lizzie, too much Merlot on Mansfield road, stick to lattes in Deliliah !!!!LOL 

    of course until we get together in that undisclosed location at the end of each month , when you need a few Merlots to keep pace with the music and the people
