Anyone remember The Jug O' Punch when it used to be at the back of Digbeth Civic Hall with the Ian Campbell Folk Group?


The club moved to Kings Heath or a while then permanently to Carrs Lane.

Sue was it the Hare and Hounds where two of his sons namely Robin and Ali UB40 used to sing ?

I am not sure where Ian's son's sang.  I do remember at one session, one of his son's sang a Billie Holliday song but can't remember which son it was now.

The pub was supposed to be The Hare and Hounds in Kings Heath according to their history

I wasn't a folkie but I recall the Bell & Pump Folk Club in Waterworks Road (1973 - 1990-ish). The resident group Mad Jocks & Englishmen are still going.
