Well it would have been near Woolworths before they (we) built the Broad Marsh in between them.

What was that club just up Stanford Street on the other side of the back of Woolies?

The 8 till Late, in the 70's?

Found this in an old record sleeve from the early 80s - the gig was moved to the boat club due to reputation of king Kurt !!!

The club was originally The Dungeon, ran by Mick Parker, changing into, amongst others, The Big Apple, and Eight till late. I have done a posting elsewhere, to see who frequented The Dungeon in the 60's.
