The Odeon Cinema, Rochester, England 1965
That's surely the smallest venue mentioned thus far. Also, the earliest performance. I'm from Gillingham, Kent.
Yeah that place served us well as kids, from Saturday morning pictures to Victor Sylvester dance classes in the '50's, (when it was the Gaumont), through to the RS concert 1965. Another memory of the place, at a dance class, we all crowded out to the balcony to see a parade of elephants, coming from Rochester Station to Jacksons Rec, for the circus show. yes really! Quite a spectacle!
As for the RS concert, I had a front row seat, all for ten bob pocket money, how things change eh!
The place is pulled down now and old people's apartments built in its place, but I'm not thinking of rushing back there any time soon.......
