My parents had their wedding reception at The Palais on 25 June 1949.  Ben would be a tad too young for admission at that time!  The two youngest bridesmaids, aged 6 and 3 years might have found him of interest!  My cousins Rosemary and Ann. Both grew up to be very good looking and both are now deceased.

Thinking it was about '85, remember seeing WASP at the Palais, Mon/Tues night, Wrathchid supporting.

First went there as a 16 year old on a Monday nights, I don't think alcohol was on sale ;does anyone know?

Later years I used to hate wearing a jacket and a tie and trousers instead of jeans. Young clubbers nowadays don't know how lucky they are. lol

LIzzie, it was where my Mam and Dad met in 1962, so without the Palais, in all probability, I wouldn't be here now.

Ditto....1936....Dad was a sax player in the band.

I've got a lot to be thankful for from the Palais. I wouldn't be here without itslywink

Nor would my kids, grandkids or Great grandkids! They could have all belonged to my best man, had he not ducked behind a column to dodge Mrs PP during the 'ladies excuse me'.
