Ballroom, Reservoir Road
« on: March 17, 2021, 04:41:09 PM »
HI
Can anyone help to identify the name of a ballroom in Reservoir Road (+ any photo's anywhere)
We used to go dancing there in the early 70's, something like a 15 piece band and a trio, stage would revolve on the hour to the tune of Moon River and before you knew it you were listening to the trio not the band.
Thanks
Les

LesBooth I hope you might tell the forum about your times at The Tower , I'm sure there are a few members that have been there during their younger days
