Alan Esdaile… Must have been the steepest stairs in a hotel, that lead up to the ballroom?
Peter Fairless… Well remembered
Leigh Mitchell… Went to a wedding reception there in 1972!
Karen Towner… Mum and Dad had their wedding reception here 1954.
Jackie Willett… Leigh, I had mine there in 1978!!!
Colin Bell… Leigh, I DJ’d many a do there
Leigh Mitchell… Colin, I bet! The reception I went to only had a record player and I seem to recall ‘Dizzy’ by Tommy Roe was on repeat!! I think the couple were on a tight budget
John Gale… Played there…. well i say played … Gbh/ Wet Paint .. 28.07.1978
Mike Mitchell… Used to rush down there after school on a Friday to get tickets.
Martine Carrington… Used to go the nightclub ( underage ) until it got raided !!! Great nights
Jon McCallion… Do you remember when we used to play there in the band? Good times
Ralph Town… My fave disco…Alan Whitfield and his DC outfit, lots of booze and fun
Jenny Power… Went there to a 21st birthday party in 1969
Peter Ellingworth… My grandmother, a no nonsense northerner, lived in the flats to the right in the passage way back in the 50-60’s.
Tracy Birrell… Was this the Registery Office in the 70’s?
Peter Ellingworth… On closer perusal, it looks like the photo is taken towards the seafront end ( where the buses used to stand), in which case the flat where my grandmother lodged was at the other end of the square where the passageway is.
Alan Esdaile… I remember my mum saying, she went to school in this building when she was 5 and it was called ‘Wellington Collage’.
Alan Esdaile… Am I right in thinking, the step treads up to the ballroom were not very wide, which made it very difficult to cary speakers and equipment up the stairs?
John Gale… Alan, I’ve seen worse. They weren’t too bad tbh … Although when we ‘played’ there we had very little equipment anyway
