Paula Ely 1967-1969 I lived in Stephen Road, and this Pub was my first experience of Discos. The Ultra Violet lights, which made our teeth look very odd, and showed up our white heads..the DJ and his music would entertain us. The mini skirts, wedge platform shoes and 'Mary Quant' hairstyles were all in abundance. I will always have fond memories of The Bowling Green, and look forward to seeing some old phots and hearing of any other stories
David Seymour 1967-1969 This was where Disco started in Newark in the mid to late 60's It was the Mod hang out that also attracted kids from Nottingham and Lincoln as part of that scene. I think the main night was Monday and sessions opened with Whiter Shade of Pale by Procol Harum. All Northern Soul was there. Happy days. It would seem there cannot be any re unions now us pensioners who are getting past it.
Angie Hogg (nee Griffiths) 1978-1982 Great place for dance music and jazz funk and did the best toasted steak sandwiches. DJ`s at the time were Roy and Keith ...great memories
