History

The Civic and Wulfrun Halls boast some of the richest venue histories in the UK, and this section of the site is here to celebrate that fact.

Feel free to browse the archive or even add to it. We want to read your views on the gigs, see the pictures and hear about your best and worst memories of the venues!

The only problem is, we don't have accurate records that pre-date 1988, so please tell us if you know of a concert/event that isn't listed.
