Newspaper Ad. in the Stockport Express for the Dungeons. Situated on Lawrence St. (at the top of the Plaza steps, off Mersey Square), Stockport.

In 1979, local businessman Reg Pickstock opened Dungeons and joins forces - once again, with promoter Harry Clarke.

For a brief period, the club started Sunday all-dayers, featuring live music. A band booked by Harry were SlowGuns. The combo has the distinction of being the first act to appear at this event.

“I believe it did ... I think it had another name too. Today it’s joined to an all-you-can-eat Chinese restaurant!”

“You actually entered Dungeons via a door located to the right at the top of the steps next to the Plaza.
Directly infront of the door was steps leading to the office where you paid to get in, to the right was the cloakroom and then you had to go down more steps to the bars and dance floor (passing the ladies toilet on your left)
It was a great place to go and was always full.
Had loads of great nights there :0) and then had to wait for a taxi home in the long queue opposite the CO-OP!”
