The Cobweb fire January 1971 and cutting for Merlin Q April 1971



Andre Palfrey-martin collection

Peter Fairless… So, what was the story, Andre, did it ever reopen?

Andre Martin… The club never re-opened, it moved to the George Street site and was rebranded The Aquarius. There were rumours flying about at the time as to the damage and the cause, but nothing was ever substantiated, it just seemed funny that it happened just 24 hours before one of the busiest nights of the year.
