Birmingham male dominated in the 80s


“Again in Birmingham in the early 80s there was a very fragmented situation, with three very small clubs scattered across the city: the Nightingale, in a terraced house at the end of a row of terraces in Aston, Laurie Williams had the Jug Club in the city and there was the Grosvenor Hotel on the Hagley Road. When they were all full you’d be lucky if you could get 600 people in all three venues, whereas the Silver Web was enjoying a crowd of 900 – 1000 way back in the early 80s. In Birmingham it was all very male-dominated. “
