  1. If you have anything to add, or you know someone who may have, please pass on.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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?
  6. 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.
  7. 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?
  8. 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)
  9. I thought Trattoria Conte was on St James Street? Did it move to Wheeler Gate?
  10. Can anyone help me with some queries I have from the past. - where exactly was the Don Juan coffee bar (on Parliament Street)? - what was the name of the Italian restaurant on Lower Parliament Street next or so to Sun Valley opposite the Ice Stadium (certainly in the 80s)? - what was the name of the restaurant above the shops on Wheeler Gate (now Dosa & Chutney) nextish to Eldon Chambers where the Beaujolais & Le Mistral were? More as I think of them ...
  11. I set up a group on Facebook to gather information about Nottingham (Scene Before In Nottingham), of the past and present, and I've looked at Nottstalgia to an extent to gather more. I have now put some of that information into a website of the same name. I have taken pictures to show the sites of many of those remembered, or not, establishments. It currently contains data about - clubs & venues (and bands/acts who played at some of them), shops, restaurants, coffee bars, some of the people who were around, certain events that happened. This is a work-in-progress, but I hope peop
  12. I have called this collection ‘Micky’s Choice’ as the songs were requested by Micky, my wife. Here are her reasons for choosing them. “Thank you, Maurice, for covering my selection. “The first song, ‘Man of the World’ by Peter Green, and the second ‘Blues Run The Game’ by Jackson C. Frank, both have music and words I can really relate to and feel a connection with (Nick Drake a contemporary of Jackson C. Frank covered ‘Blues Run The Game’). I take comfort in knowing I am not alone in the way I see the world. “The next two songs, Neil Young’s ‘Like A Hurricane’ and Si
  13. On a very hot day, cool down & chill. Let me entertain you - Chris Farlowe (Rolling Stones), Steve Miller Band, Small Faces, Buffalo Springfield, David Bowie.
