The Cromwellian
Bank St, Bolton

It was previously called The Beachcomber, and just a couple of years earlier Hermans Hermits were the resident group and I recall seeing The Who, Lulu and The Luvvers and Spencer Davies Group.

The Santa Fe Reunion played fairly regular at the Cromwellian. However I recall I got so pissed up one gig, I fell off the stage. This didn't go down well with the Club, our Managers or my mates in the Band. Not to mention the people I fell on !

I'm doing some research into the Who and I'm trying to find when they played the Cromwellian Club. I'd be interested to hear from anyone who witnessed the show too.
