400 Ballroom 1965

Torquay, June 11th, 1965

In the summer of 1965 The 'N Betweens were already a force to be reckoned with. Playing at the Torquay 400 Ballroom again, back due to public demand, as part of their Cornish Tour.

Hi there,

I am interested in searching your newspaper archive for 1965. Since I live in Essex it's not likely that I will be able to get to your library, I was hoping you might have somebody that could look for me. I'm aware that this is unlikely but on the positive side, I do have one date?

I am looking for Steve Brett & The Mavericks at the 400 Ballroom in Torquay on July 9th 1965. They did at least 3 visits in 1965: January, July and September but I don't have dates for the other gigs. Rest assured, when I find out I will be back to harass you.

The N' Betweens or The In-Betweens also played the 400 Ballroom that year, possibly in early June and I would be very happy to find an ad for them too?

Thank you for taking time out to read my email, any help or suggestions very much appreciated?
