... had a place down from the Shah Bagh that was called the Bombay.
I remember it well.  And the Koh-I-Noor.  The Nataraj in Broad Street was another favourite of the cast and crew.

Hi all - only came across this after googling Night Out as I was curious about any history as I myself worked there for a couple of years 79/80 (at a guess). I was on bars - then bar supervisor on bar 1 and/or 4. I was known then as Jan Walker age 20ish. I remember names of some mentioned too! Lynn and her mom for sure, lovely ladies! Those were the days of Caberet - now sadly lost! Still get a kick from having met and talked to some of the acts, fond memories. Oh and I did partake of the curry houses too - eating till 2 in the morning and beyond sometimes!

Hi Susan and Jan
I was a Head Waiter from the very start, so you will remember Dieter Thode and John Hawks. I like all head waiters when allocated section 1 of the theatre was allocated the task of looking after top of the bill. With Showwaddywaddy, remember the start of their act to the theme of Dambusters before they burst onto the stage. I remember Cannon & Ball, Little & Large, Ken Goodwin, Dana, Hollies, Stylistics and may more. I even had the job of looking after 4Tops & Freddie Starr. Good times and much missed when I think about it. It was hard work at times as you must remember when being a waitress, fighting for cutlery in your section and getting stuck in the small kitchen on the right side of the stage. I was rummanging in my old stuff and still have my contract of employment docs and training notes from the beginning.

Hi Susan & Jan
Forgot to put my name at the end of the last post. Its Jim Chong. You may remember me. The other head waiter was Pete Crow who I worked with.
