  1. There was the Loft Bar and Fade and the Hard to Find cafe on Mansfield Road.
  2. 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.
  3. Does anyone know anything about the 50s and the teddy boys? Where did they go/hang about in Nottingham? Any stories?
  4. The latest article - about Rock Cemetery. Any extra information welcome. https://scenebeforeinnottingham.wordpress.com/home/landmarks/church-rock-cemetery/
  5. 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?
  6. 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.
  7. If you have anything to add, or you know someone who may have, please pass on.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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?
  11. It has been suggested to me that in the 70s, the restaurant I mentioned above was either Wesleys or Westleys. Can anyone confirm this please and was it that in the 80s?
  12. Can anyone remember the name of the restaurant (in maybe the 80s or 90s) on Pepper Street before it became the 'Pretty Orchid' Thai restaurant please. It is now a bar called Pepper Rocks.
  13. Luigi's thank you - my neighbours used to work there, so I used to eat there. There was another Italian on Mansfield Road - was it Trattoria Roma and was it known as Nino's?
  14. I have on St James Street - Trattoria Conti (1967-72) La Contessa (1972-?) Le Bistro (French) Sapna (Indian) All downstairs (I believe in the basement of the Malt Cross)
