Venues

Visit the venues as they are now : Membership cards

This is probably the hardest page to work with. The vast number of venues and their changing names - particularly in the early sixties - makes it extremely difficult to provide a full lisItng.

Plus, there is very little photographic stuff around - few of us went to clubs with our Instamatics. I can't remember having access to a camera in those days - or wanting to.

So, we try our best and welcome your recollections!!
