Hi there,

I am interested in searching your newspaper archive for an ad in 1966. Since I live in Essex it's not likely that I will find time to get to your library, I was wondering if you have anybody there that could look for me. I'm aware that this is unlikely but on the positive side, I have the date and location so it only requires finding the ad in the papers over the preceding 7 days?

On April 1st 1966, The "N" Betweens or The In-Betweens (or countless other misspellings) played in Newcastle at the Majestic Ballroom. It will look something like this....

"Top Rank Dancing,
Majestic Ballroom
International Recording Artistes
The "N" Betweens
Admission 5/-"

If somebody would be kind enough to look at the papers for me, this band and particularly this show, for many boring reasons, is important to me and I would like to find a dated advert to confirm its existence, date and location.

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

Michael Parker ;-)"

"Dear Mr Parker

With regard to your enquiry of 18th December 2008, I have checked the Evening Chronicle which is the local newspaper and found the advert you referred to. It appeared in the paper for the actual day of performance, Friday 1st April 1966.

The microfilm was not of great quality but I have managed to get a 'reasonable' copy which you will find in the attachment. If I made the print any smaller in order to get the date etc on the page you would not have been able to read anything so I confirm for you the date it appeared again.

Friday April 1st 1966. Evening Chronicle.

Merry Christmas
