Thanks for that little piece of history Postie, I couldn't read the last part, got down to the opening of the cellar as a youth club. Have you been reading the "Remember When?" articles in the Birmingham
Mail. 2lst, 28th January and 4th February. The club was opened well before that in the late 40s - I joined the Junior Section about 1947 and graduated to the "proper" youth club when I was in my teens. I had my letter printed 28th January. The cellar must have been an addition after I left.
I got married in 1957. I and my many friends spent many happy times there.

Hi Rod, I was just reading your post on the reccomended music page concerning Black Sabath. Well this is where they used to practice before they became Black Sabath.

Cheers Frantic........ I understood a local hall was used by them, but didn't make the connection with the Burlington Hall. We can add that into any other info we get.

I did an article for the main site on Burlington Hall about 3/4 years ago, don't know whether it is still there will have to check. Rod I gave some photos to either you or John Houghton to go with it, perhaps they could be included together with Postie's handbill.

Rpd, I have just had a look and the photos I mentioned have been included - thank you. I have got the originals, but it must have been John Houghton who copied them and gave me them back. With the main site out of action for quite a while I didn't realise they had been printed.

Sylvia the main site has never ever been out of action for more than a few hours? I know I didnt update for a while, but it was all still online? I think perhaps you might have been trying to use old links?

The only youth club I can recall by the Bartons Arms was Burlington Hall, which I went to from about 7/8 years old to my teens, the only other place it might by would be the Gospel Hall on Park Lane just across the road from the Shareholders pub. Gospel Hall having moved from the other end of Park Lane when they redeveloped the area to make way for the Aston Expressway.

Thanks for the photo Moss, much as I remember it apart from the ground floor with the blue painted areas and the cream paint. Spent many, many happy hours there.
