Think it was still called The Sherwood Rooms into the mid-seventies on memory.

Just surfin  and found this info on Sherwood Rooms. It appears to be still under that name into the 80s?

It shows 'The Who and The Hollies' both appearing there in the August 1966, my last summer living in Nottingham.

Never went to see them though, to busy saving the pennies for my coming Christmas wedding.:biggrin:

Well blow me down! I can't remember The Sherwood Rooms reverting to its original name. Nor can I remember Corpo buses with a separate exit door. Bet Catfan can.

I remember another time in the 60s, took a girl from Stapleford to to the Sherwood rooms to a Football presentation night.........she was a little 'Fire-ball' to say the least....anyway i'd had a couple of dances with another girl i knew and she got all 'Mardy' and stormed off to the car park that used to be at the rear,and as i went looking for her i could hear a loud banging sound................eventually found her kicking a blue Morris 1100 causing several dents in the door...............my blue Morris 1100 was parked about 2 rows away.................lol.

The 1100 was a nice car.  My girlfriend / Wife's dad had one.  We used it all the time.  It was Dove grey not blue, though.

I'm confused. Is 1100 the number of girlfriends you netted in the 60s or do I have a gift for seriously underestimating your charisma? :wacko:

Sherwood Rooms

.Think the first band I saw here was Budgie, remember Diamond Head, I think supported by Irish band Mama's Boy's...

Doe:s anybody remember the name of the band that supported Wishbone Ash?..think that's correct..

A Female singer, guitarist played a Flying V. About '85 me thinks.
