Nightclub staff


Recommended Posts

I heard today that two of the Town's old night-club managers have passed away -

Mickey Norton who managed Annabelles and was my bessie mate for a long time

Alan Cotterell - Who managed the Penny and Scamps as it became

Wherever they are, I wish them well

I do remember Stu having very short hair! !laughing! But, it is true - Bob used to stand in on the door sometimes! Probably got paid in beer. Do you know which pub at all? I was near there just the other day as I blitzed through Notts - slowly enough to take a beer or two in Langtry's - which at least still looks like a pub!

Gordon Long and Gibson ran Midland Carpets before going into the club racket.They had about 6 branches, one on Alfreton Road Nottm.Both of them came across as wide boys and made a few quid out of carpets when fully fitted was the new in thing.They both had Jags when I worked for them for a few months, and neither missed an opportunity when a gullible punter was in the shop.

Did the Gibsons own the Beach at one time? Old man Gibson had a white roller.

Yes Steve. Both his sons worked there too Gerry Jr & David. Gibson bought the Ad Lib/Beachcomber from Keith Symonds

Keith Symonds was the guy who later owned Pickwicks

Missed that one Pat! Now pickwick rings a bell with me, But I can't remember where it was, Upstairs somewhere, I think?

Entrance on Lower Parliament Street. 'Society Club' rings a bell?

Am I right...Mickey Norton, better known to me as Mick, was he a regular at the Dungeon? And was Alan a slim, tall guy ? (talking early to mid 70's here, we all add a pound or two in later years)

Im just wondering if the guy who asked me to become one of his door staff (because of my karate skills, not body size!) was Alan, it would have been around 1974/5, and I was managing what was the old Dixons shop on King St, and he used to come in to buy music cassettes for his car, that we were selling off after the shop finished selling cameras etc.

If anyone has a pic, that would be good.
