Due to a major refurbishment project at the Cross House in 2003, we found ourselves looking for an alternative venue. Brian managed to secure us the old clubroom at St Dominic Park at Harrowbarrow, just down the road from Metherell. The last people to use this venue were a group of line dancers a couple of years previously.
So the trusty band of rock 'n'
rollers set about redecorating the
clubroom to make it our home. It was a big job .... walls to re-plaster
paint, ceiling to paint, floor to sand down and re-seal. We worked the
of 2003 and were ready to open as the Western Union Jive Club on
During the Summer of 2005, the licensing laws went through a major change which meant that licensed premises had to re-apply for their licences. Problems with our venue meant that at the beginning of 2006, we were on the move again.
Only a short distance away we found the Parish Hall at St Dominick which matched our requirements perfectly ..... and here we are today, very happy in our venue with our very friendly rock 'n' roll and jive club. The loyal group who have been with the club since our humble beginnings are still the backbone of the club ........ always welcoming newcomers into our very happy environment.
By 2007, the club had become successful to the point that we felt confident enough to stage our first Band Night. We wanted to be able to stage the event in a venue that was large enough to seat around 140 people and provide plenty of room for dancing. Tavistock Town Hall was the answer. Our first band night was in June 2007 with Big Boy Bloater and his Southside Stompers and it was a sell-out.
In 2012 the club has extended its coverage by putting on additional band nights in Plymouth. The venue is the Woolwell Centre and the band nights there are in April, July and September. Band Night tickets are always available for purchase in advance and should there be any tickets remaining, then these would be made available on the door by pre-arrangement. This ensures we know how many people will be there and can therefore arrange sufficient seating and optimise the dance floor space. We are a Rock 'n' Roll dance club and as such we know how important it is to get these things right.
