The Four Provinces

David Pagett Bunce

Hi, does anyone recall a social club/pub called The Four Provinces or The 4 P's from back in the 1950s early 1960's? It is possibly now called The Pavilions and is 229 Alcester Road South near Kings Heath. I'm looking for the name of the Landlord/Tennant who managed or ran the club around that time. This is a personal search looking for family history. Many thanks.

Hi David,
There is a social club called the E57 at 699 Alcester Road South. Could this have perviously been The 4 P's? The names on the Midland Electoral Register for 1955 at that address are Ernest and Alice Banner.

Hi Lynn and thank you for the response.....I should have put that I'm pretty sure that it is now called the Pavilions 229 Alcester road. I am aware of the E57 but not the place I'm looking for. Thanks again.
