Derby Assembly Rooms All Niter


Recommended Posts

Posted

My first all niter this  - it was packed and awesome. I remember the dance floor bouncing to So Is The Sun. Was it 1979 or 1980? I know Chris King was one of the dj's but can't remember who else was. Anyone?

I had hitch hiked from Mablethorpe with one of my mates and Chris King picked us up hitching back in the morning in his white convertible merc - dropped us in Nottingham.

Anyone got any memories?

Peter

I have some memories of the Assembly Rooms particularly one of the anniversaries around 78/79 (I even posted up a photo from there which had both me and my old mate Lee Vowles in it, years before we had even met) also seem to remember a massive DS raid on the night...............................

yes assembly rooms burnt down, well some of it anyway, as for the mosque thing first ive heard, both assembly rooms and queen street were great not only for nighters ? but also for punk/reggae stuff, clash /dammed live, sex pistols never turned up, now thinking cant remember nighters at queen street baths

Here you are Cod

Can remember the changing cubicles at the top on each side And about ten concrete seating areas each side all the way along the pool that stepped up from the dance floor the pool had been covered with a top wooden dance floor really springy.

I have the same problem with him indoors (Brain Fade) luckily like most women I can usually remember most of the places I have been & much to his annoyance I can remember word for word what he's said where & when but I suspect most men find that with the Ladies in their lives !

:yes: Kirsty
