CLUBS IN CUMBRIA.
Here are just a few clippings from my scrapbook to give
our readers a idea of the vast amount of entertainment
happening in Cumbria in the 60s 70s it was fantastic, folk were going out most nights of the week to cabaret, and Dances,
Dinner out, etc, etc,
Its sad if you missed it all because today its like being on a desert Island living in Cumbria as far as entertainment
For people like me and my friends it is quite unbelievable
that it has all but gone.
There are reasons for this state of affairs but this is not the place to hold an inquest on what we have lost but to remember
the wonderful times we had.
There were many clubs and Hotels booking Entertainers/Bands
and all kinds of acts the local press had two or three pages of
adverts and it was exspanding all the time as more clubs came
on stream, it was a very exciting time for new acts because
there was a place to try out your talents, and they did in there
Some Clubs still go on but lots and lots
have bit the dust,, here are some survivers
