Oh, how sad only to have the memories of such iconic treasures, but better than nothing. I remember going to the Saturday morning kids' programmes. Pretty chaotic, as I recall! More significantly, I can remember going, with my mum and dad, to his firm’s (Beautility) annual dinner/dances, in the “Assembly Rooms” upstairs. I have a photo (somewhere) of the three of us at one such event. Much later, in 1963, I went to see the Everly Brothers. They were “supported” by The Rolling Stones (!), who had just released their first single “Come On”. The audience went absolutely MAD for The Stones, and the Everlys definitely came second that day! If my memory serves me correctly, apart from all the various amazing facilities incorporated in this wonderful theatre, wasn’t there a massive hall, just for queuing in, while you waited for a seat to become available? Unbelievable, now. Our favourite record shop of the time (Dancy’s) was just over the other side of Silver Street, too. Happy days…

I remember Golden Earring, in the mid 70s. My hearing is still recovering!
