The "Morgue"!. If only I knew then what I do now.....
Got chatting to a small blond girl wearing a yellow knitted sort of string vest thing with a black bra!!! Circa 1963 I guess. Got dragged away by my mate who said she was dressed like a prossie! Loved her then, still do for the memory. May have been a group playing, dunno.
Missed the Beatles gig - no dosh.

I have just read that the "Morgue" is to be knocked down. SHAME.
What a lot of memories I have from Christmas 1963 onwards. Johnny Kidd and the Pirates, The Animals, The Kinks, The Hollies, The Who, The Applejacks to name but a few and I remember queuing to pay 15 shillings to see the Walker Brothers. The support bands were great too and one who springs to mind is The Notions from Liverpool.
It was a brilliant Saturday night out, no alcohol was sold and it was 9 old pennies for a coke.
Wouldn`t it be great to collate a list of memories on this page?

Remember wading through floods at the bull ring to see the Beatles. And the last buses home that went every where great days great memories.

Spent rather too much time at the bar as an underage drinker. Most memorable event was seeing and hearing Roxy Music blasting out.
Other memories, Edwin Starr and a decidedly half empty hall and half a dozen girls dancing round their handbags.
