:ohmy:

Would that be the Cavendish suite in Mansfield on route to the East Midlands chesterfield bus stop.

Tried booking that place in 1971 didnt want to know strictly ballroom as is the regency in Sutton to this day

what venues they could have been,

Syd Booths was a good record shop in 1969 as you could buy all sorts of things as was Selecta Disc on Arkwright st Notts,bargainsat 5 shillings galore,

Shame they had to close or move

Venues from the old days see if you can add a few.

Mansfield Palias

Swan Hotel

Horse and Groom(known as Colours 2)

8 Bells (Legendary 6ts club soul venue)

Brown Cow Friday Nights

Revolution(Jimmys night Sunday)

Tufty Club (Tuesdays and Fridays

Squinting Cat(having a renassiance nowadays)

Forest town Welfare (Thursday nights)

Bull Farm yc

Masons Arms

years 1969 To 1974

Not Soul nights but used to go to creepers around 79 as a young snapper when it had the best youth club nights in Notts. Always a good mix of Northern and Funk, even though it was rough as a badgers arse as in them days every town's bunch of kids would be at war with the next town. Used to get interesting with gangs from Baseford, Strelly / Broxtowe, Aspley, Kimberley and Hyson Green.

Cracking venue, Colin Law and I went to have a look at it in mid 80s with a view to starting a nighter there (too close to residential) curved ceiling as I remember?

What about "trotters" banqueting suite, i think it was called stewarts when it first opened, Kev Roberts was the main man, when he had vinyl mania, on white hart street, mansfield, I remember Gary Rushbrook, Dave Evison, Kev himself. I think it ran for about 6-7 years, and was excellent. People who used to go , who I havent seen in eons Tony Berne( Bernie from eastwood) Little lynn Bower, Dave and Alan Gibbons, Karen, Adey Smith,Kevin Smith, Steve Riley, Curly from notts, cant forget him.

Hi Steve, Robin here, fantastic nights at The Brit very late 70's. Anyone remember Dave Molloy singing George Kirby "What Can I Do" on stage! Still got a cracking tape of yours from early '80's.

saw Evo about 3? years back at Bestwood, got chatting and said he'd put weight on, pot/kettle ;-)

said he'd been having women problems, didn't pursue it as he was off to Stoke niter, said i'd send him "Downtown Crowd" RA later.

did next day and said hope he gets his prolems with the women sorted.

'bout 2 weeks later, got phone call from constabulary somewhere up Newcastle way, asking about him, said they had his computer and saw my message about his women on it and wanted to know what i meant.

all innocent stuff i said, then asked what it was all about.

said he'd gone from Bestwood to Newcastle not stoke, and MURDERED his girlfriend. was in papers. only way they caught im was by 2 speeding tickets he got that night showing he was on A1 and not at Stoke.

didn't believe it of him but shows you can't always tell.

didn't hear any more about it so not sure where he's banged up or for how long. never saw it in the post either and i looked for a while.

spoke to Etna (Hucknall) last year at Skeg and it was a friend of a friend of hers who it happened to.

Shippo sorely missed as well, loved seeing him do backdrops, especially at Matlock.

First introduction to soul/ northern in Mansfield was at a school disco.Held every Tuesday or Wednesday, i think, at St. Johns School.

Does anyone else remember this?

Pop, Crisps and Northern Soul - what more could a young man want!

Well there was one thing now i come to think of it but not on these family read pages!

PS.

Still looking for Steve Wilson! Might turn up at Field Mill now the new seasons starting!

first time ive seen this thread - trotters eh, i remember them, thats about the time i started getting back into the northern scene after a long break.

Used to like that place too.

PS, i can remember a curly from notts palais - but the one i remember was a black guy not the one in Ian's flyer?

Only reason i remember him was he was always skint and borrowed a fiver off me at the palais in 1981 - never did get it back and with inflation i guess it's now about £20 :D

He was always dancing around your area Steve Phyllis on the left hand side of the floor. - wasnt his name curly? very tall guy.
