Leicester History and Expats / Re: Baileys night club

I remember all those acts and many more. you right those days will never be seen again. part of the problem though was that Leicester people at that time were notorious for not wanting to pay for entertainment. sad that its all over. I worked there for a few yrs.

Remember it well.
My then girlfriend (now wife) was a trainee nurse at the royal.
Every week free entry tickets would be placed in the nurses home, my wife always used to try to get a couple for us to go on a Wednesday.
Saw many acts there some long since forgotten!

Also paid to see some of the named stars, i.e Three Degrees, Tommy Cooper, Chilites, Drifters, Mud and the fantastic mr cool Jene Pitney etc.

One of the best acts to stick in my mind was a group called Limmie and the Family Cookin, sung You can do Magic, Smarty Pants .......
They were brilliant, remember the lead singer crying with emotion due to the audience reaction.

Unfortunately due to stars wanting so much money these days by only playing big venues, places  like this will no longer be.

My late Father-in-law was a member of the club,and I have in my possession,several of his awards presented for his winning at cribbage.Since I have no use for them,and my husband,who was his only surviving son,died last year,I wondered if Icould return them to the club.I would be grateful if you could let me know if this could be possible. My Father-in-law was George Derbyshire, he was a member for many years and died in 1972.

We used to go to the Chameleon on Saturday nights to drink Coffee and listen to a jazz guitarist and singer (Maurice Coleman, I think). Occasionally there would be a girl singer/waitress too. My girlfriend and I worked there for a few weeks in the late 60s

I worked at the Bell in the 60s when I was at catering college. I worked doing banquets. The Maigret d'Hotel was a Mr Glass. We got paid 12/6p per night but after the meal finished we were allowed to become wine waiters until midnight, we didn't get paid but we made fantastic tips and some of the older boys and girls ripped off the toffs by charging for drinks they didn't have. I was only 17 and after work there were no trains or buses so I hitch hiked home to Sileby.

Hi David
Many thanks for that i am interested in gaining some more information. I am searching for a Steve Kelly who may also have worked as a trainee chef...he lived at the back of the Bell...played the guitar. If you recall someone of that name...or have any pics or if you can think of any other names of those who worked there it would be greatly appreciated.
Tina
