  1. Cheers Cliff Ton. That would be Digby College then. I used to go there in the 60s to see a few bands. My band, the Salty Dogs, actually played there.
  2. Apparently a live album called 'Both Ears and the Tail' was recorded by Martin Carthy & Dave Swarbrick at the Folkus Folk Club in Nottingham in 1966. Does anyone know where this was?
  3. I've seen a picture recently (usually shown on Paul Robey's TV program) of Commerce Square in the Lace Market containing a place called Sgt Pepper. The photo (as on Picture Nottingham) claims to be taken in 1975. Does anyone know if Sgt Pepper was a club?
  4. I have seen a question asked as to whether there was ever a priory on this site prior to the Hippodrome/Gaumont, so I assume I'm asking prior to the factory?
  5. For my website, I'm trying to create timescales. So I want to know roughly when clubs were open. Currently my scales are by decades, but if people know exact dates that would be good. Any help appreciated.
  6. There was the Loft Bar and Fade and the Hard to Find cafe on Mansfield Road.
  7. Does anyone have any information about wild white cattle in Wollaton Park in the recent past? I believe some may have been re-introduced in the 1980s but they are not there now.
  8. Does anyone know anything about the 50s and the teddy boys? Where did they go/hang about in Nottingham? Any stories?
  9. The latest article - about Rock Cemetery. Any extra information welcome.
  10. Does anyone know? There was a club called the Calypso on Byard Lane, later the New Calypso opened on Commerce Square. I can see that the New Calypso was opened around 1973/4 by Carlton Forbes the cricketer. Did he own the original? Does anyone know any details? Did anyone got to either of these clubs?
  11. I have been spending my time in lockdown adding detail to the 'Scene Before in Nottingham' website. I have not been out taking photos but I have added much written word, hopefully which you will find of interest.
  12. Quite a few updates made on the website: The ‘Scene Before in Nottingham’ website has been enhanced with more information, more stories about Nottingham. It now contains the following categories and sub-categories which can all be reached from the ‘Home’ page (just click on the pictures or words). - Places – Clubs & Venues, Coffee Bars, Restaurants, Shops, Theatres - People – In their own words – Alan Askey, Craig Strong, Metal Micky, Peter Groves, Offbeat Characters - Performance – who played at The Boat Club, the Dungeon, the Rescue Rooms, Ro
  13. I am putting a video up every Sunday (just ask if you want them more regularly and suggest songs you would like to hear - I could repost songs I've already put up). This week's offering was a hit by America in 1971. Enjoy.
  14. An article in the Nottingham Post from 2019, claimed that the restaurant on Forman Street became Punchinello in 1965. However there is a picture of the premises when it was the Empire Cafe and it became the Soup Kitchen (there is another picture of that) in 1975 or 1976. So when did it really become Punchinello?
