Looking for new premises


Alan, a former Chairman of the Nightingale Club recalls the search for new premises, and why the was turned down. “We looked at lots of locations, some were very good, some were bad. The furthest location from Thorp Street was The Institute, on Digbeth, a big premise which would have been fine even though it was right on the edge of our search area. We thought we could have carried the crowd with us. The problem was it had preservation orders on it, previously being Digbeth Town Hall, a protected building. We knew whatever we chose to do in the future would be difficult to obtain planning permission for.”
