Hi, could anyone help me with an approximate year for this please? It's nothing like the Carousel I frequented, as in no big stage, no balcony and a tiny dancefloor. I guess when I went they'd turned it into a nightclub venue, though that old cafeteria room was still going where Pete Lawson held court :)

Yes, now you've put a rough time on 'my going', I would say I must have been going there '84-'85 - may have been a bit earlier. I'm actually trying to build a timeline of all the venues (where and when) I went, so many venues between Lanc's., Yorks. & Midlands after the Casino shut & through to late '99 (difficult as I left the UK over 20 years ago & lost contact with so many).

I would say yes to the Friday nighters. I literally only recall a few people's names (first) who went at that time and only saw and connected with them there.

I know I've read other people's recollections of going to the above pictured location/time, just don't know when that was, when it closed and when the nighters began again (but now you've given me a good idea).

Thx :)
