The Lamplight Club

Sent in by Dick Owen: I've still got a meal ticket for the Lamplight from 79-81 where the legendary Nick the Greek did the chips. Appalling Whitbread Trophy Bitter....Kid Khaki and the Karamojos and a band with Michael Wood/Dave Chadwick (can't recall the name) played . Some really naff bands strutted their stuff. Think the owner was an Irish guy with a colourful past - owned a hotel - now burnt down (think what you will ) on the corner of Wilbraham and Egerton Road North - where the garden centre now is. The Lamplight was an amazing fire hazard - luckily no one got hurt or killed ! Great Thursday nights - forget Friday.
