old north wales allnighter venue gone


Recommended Posts

Yes I went to most of them, they were quite good and not a bad venue for an all-nighter. Soul Sam was on a couple of times in the 70's, Richard Searling and Keith Minshull in the 80's. I remember one night in the mid 80's when there was about 20 punters in and on one of the coldest nights of that winter no heating on inside, I only managed to last until about 2:30. I only live about 2 mins. walk from the pier and have been watching it slowly fall apart over the last 20 odd years. the beach looks a lot better now without it.

Made the trip down from Widnes a few times . Always had a great night.

Since then I've spent many a happy hour down in Colwyn Bay at a friends or at Cambrian photography.

Must admit it was looking rather derelict  last week before it was finally demolished

 The friendship club, that's long gone, there's a school there now. I remember the Pomagne now, foul tasting stuff.

Time Marches On... Saw KC and the Sunshine Band there in 1974 and went to just the one Allnighter in 1978. Not quite Cleethorpes Pier but neverthelesss a good venue for this part of the country. Big following of the music up there back in the day with plenty travelling from Holyhead, Llangefni and Bangor.

Nobody has said it so.

 It's the end of the pier for this one. 

Sorry I know it was a really bad joke.  Went once but strangely don't remember the night at all so must have been good
