The Market Tavern

In December 1989 we had to move yet again. By now we were used to scouring the pubs of Birmingham for a vacant clubroom and we were lucky enough to find The Market Tavern (back to Digbeth). This venue was a striking Victorian, red brick building with an upstairs clubroom. It was here that we booked Chris Wood, Joe & Antoinette McKenna, and Jake Walton & Norman Haskell.
Unfortunately, due to a change of landlord, we were on the move again after only 15 months.
