In the mid 60’s I used to spend holidays with my grandparents in Brignall Road Stockton-on.Tees. My mother was born in Stockton but moved to Norfolk in the 1940’s to do her war service in the ATS. She met my father in Norwich whom she later married and after the war she settled in Norfolk. On my frequent visits I discovered and visited all the Bailey Night Clubs in the north east. As a young 17 year old it was an unbelievable experience after the peace and quiet of rural Norfolk. My favourite club was Tito’s in Brunswick Street where I played roulette, blackjack etc. watched many famous names perform including – Dave Allen, Lulu and The Luvers, Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band, Fortunes and met some lovely Stockton girls, one in particular called Pamela who I think at that time lived in Newlands Avenue, Stockton. Wonderful days, sadly long gone but the memories still remain. I have attached various flyers from that period which I recently discovered and which may be of interest.
