   I worked at Baileys for six years. I was really into the American soul bands who played there. Great times, great memories.

Loads of great international acts competing with the Knives and forks . Saw the 3 Degrees amongst others you could really dress up for a night out there, Bacardi and coke was the drink of the moment

  I miss the dressing up. Nowadays most people just about manage smart casual to go out.
  We had a laugh one night when a new trainee chef wheeled a trolley out to a table to flame some chicken. He must have overdone the brandy because the flames instantly reached up three feet in the air. He ran off and it was left to a bouncer to drag the trolley back into the kitchen. Paul Conquest, the compere, ran onto the stage and asked people to stay calm, but I think most of the audience were doubled up laughing. Happy days.

I played in the house band from Nov. '74, to Dec. '80. There were some great characters on the staff. Big Ted, bars manager, Lee Curtis, DJ, Paul Conquest, compere, and many more. I just recently met ex bouncer, Frank Parish, now doing security at the Shed.

i worked as a waiter there in 1977 dave bogis dave sprowl  frank halford chico etc all the usual suspects.
great place to work
Title: Re: Baileys night club
Post by: gres E on 21:03:49, 28/04/11
yes, I remember Dave Bogis, the Sprowl, and Frank Halford well. You must have worked out of the waitress bar, down near the stage.
The lease is still up for grabs, but, sadly, the night club days are long gone.
Don't know if anyone remembers Dave, the keyboard player in the band. He would have been sixty at Christmas, but unfortunately passed away in October.
Title: Re: Baileys night club
Post by: albagman on 22:30:43, 28/04/11
no there was a kitchen bang facing the stage next to the stairs to go up to the balcony, two chefs richard and david read ran the kitchen, spent a few happy hours down in phase 2 if you remember what that was.
there was a bouncer with a large growth on his neck, cant remember his name.
alphonso was also there as a bouncer, and later in life i bumped in to chico he went into the building trade
Title: Re: Baileys night club
Post by: gres E on 08:53:32, 30/04/11
Yes I remember Richard and the 'staff suppers'.
The bouncer with the lump on his neck told me that it happened when he jumped out of a plane doing a parachute jump. Can't remember his name, though.
I only went down to phase two a couple of times, to help Roy, the maintenance guy, move some old tables around.
 
Title: Re: Baileys night club

Only reason I ever went down phase 2 was when one of our female clients needed a little extra service :D

Hi All,

Just found this forum/thread.

My mum worked as a cleaner in Bailey's in the early/mid 70's when I was young (probably around '74 or '75 as I think I'd just started school)

I remember a Christmas party for the staff's children - think the Waddy's were there, and I remember getting a talking doll from santa.

I also remember a great cake shop opposite - Cream (fake!!) finger doughnuts to die for :)

Hi I am Gill that use to run the Baileys sales office.  My name then was Gill Tarratt and I use to run round Leicester in the Baileys mini van until it was updated to a mini.  They were fantastic days and it was just the best job ever. Coach parties came from from up to 50 miles away to see the acts. Paul Conquest and I ran a knock out competition with teams from companies in different towns. Mike Payne gave me the job of sales who I am sure everyone will remember. I worked very closely with Maggie Kerr who I am still in touch with. Big Ted the bars manager was a real character. I would love a re-union of all the staff from those days.  If you are interested please contact me on this forum.

Hi, Gill. I played guitar with the band, 'Nite life' until the club became a disco. I remember you and Maggie. I kept in touch with Jim Mclaren until he moved out of Leicester. I think he's in Melton now. I'd definitely be up for a reunion. Since Dave the keyboard player died, some photo's and a video have come to light.

Hi  I am sure I would remember you when I see you. On Saturday 24 November Paul conquest  is doing a talk on Baileys at the age concern building in Wigston which is for charity at £5 a ticket.  I am going to ask him if he could help me arrange a re union as I am sure loads of people would want to come.

Hi there Allycat,
My name is Maggie and I worked at Baileys, from the very first day. And was there to the very end.
And by the way I designed and printed out (on an old Gestetna? print machine!!!!!) THAT Gary Glitter flyer.
Had a wonderful time over the years, really enjoyed my job, seeing people enjoying themselves.
Memories - keep them coming............
 
Lots of names have been mentioned and a lot more to be added yet, managers Bernie Wincop, Clive Maidens.  Stuckie and John, the sound and light guys, the little man in dispense that used to make those amazing drinks for sore throats!!!!  Graham White, Jane Reid............. there's so many more.
Look forward to seeing some old faces on the 24th.

i took a young 17 year old girl there in 1973, her name was Elayne,we had only been going out for a couple of weeks.39 years later we are still together, so baileys has a lot to answer for
 she became a sunday night committee member, frank the table manager always gave us a seat at the front, and we met a variety of stars back stage
we've still got signed photos of Mud ,Marmalade, Wilme reading and our most treasured is a photo of Elayne and paul conquest on stage on elaynes 18th birthday happpy happy days :2funny:

As a Ex Pat I've just come across this site..brought back so many memories. Although I am showing my age here.. ::) before Baileys was Baileys it was (I think) Top Rank and as a young one they used to have Saturday Morning disco's  I remember being in a dance competition with three other people on the stage...needless to say I didnt win.

Baileys was also brilliant..great acts and always packed...I was "grown" up then!!

Can anybody remember the "disco" in Horsefair Street downstairs..can't remember what it was called now!! and also the beerkeller in the market.....great times      :)
Title: Re: Baileys night club
Post by: Suze on 22:25:41, 06/12/12
I remember Top Rank well, I used to go every Saturday morning  :D I also remember the Beer keller and the disco, God was I ever that young ;)
Title: Re: Baileys night club
Post by: ice-cream on 17:54:00, 07/12/12
Its been driving me mad   :D   trying to think of the name of the disco downstairs in the market place but I think it was called the Horsefair. I was a year underage and I remember standing on the stairs qeueing working out my "pretend" age. I was so frighten that I wouldn't get in.  :2funny:

There was also Grannys on London Road..I had my 21st there.

bit before i think. mostly worked baileys. some brilliant clubs at that time. nightlife was great then all of a sudden there was nothing.
Title: Re: Baileys night club
Post by: ice-cream on 07:34:48, 09/12/12
Mowtownman - there was a "disco" near a bowling ally..not Warf St area but I think it must be where the Shires shopping centre is..was trying to find an old map but couldn't find anything  :-[  and also the one near St Maggies bus station..think it was called at one point the Penny Farthing??
 
Bet you are so glad you're not "bouncing" now I'm sure there was no where near the trouble there is today!!
Title: Re: Baileys night club
Post by: the_motownman on 09:40:47, 09/12/12
i remember the one near wharf st. as there was trouble on the night it opened. it should have stayed a bowling alley really. the trouble is about the same as always but the degree of individual violence seems to have increased. very sad that the young cant go out for a quiet night.

Hi I am Gill that use to run the Baileys sales office.  My name then was Gill Tarratt and I use to run round Leicester in the Baileys mini van until it was updated to a mini.  They were fantastic days and it was just the best job ever. Coach parties came from from up to 50 miles away to see the acts. Paul Conquest and I ran a knock out competition with teams from companies in different towns. Mike Payne gave me the job of sales who I am sure everyone will remember. I worked very closely with Maggie Kerr who I am still in touch with. Big Ted the bars manager was a real character. I would love a re-union of all the staff from those days.  If you are interested please contact me on this forum.

Hi all,


just found this thread.  My Dad used to work the door at Baileys (Bren) and met my mum there.  While he was working I used to sit with my mum up on the balcony to the right of the stage. Remember seeing the Drifters among others.


If anyone organising another reunion at some point I'm sure they'd love to know about it.


Cheers,


Tony

Hi Mowtownman, you're right with the name but Bren's not an ex squaddie.  He is about 5'6" and has a name tattooed on his fingers.  They're still together and live in Wigston.  What's your name? Were you known as Mowtownman back then? will ask him if he remembers you.

yep that's one of the guys I knew. just assumed he was ex forces. bout same size as me although I was broader. ok geezer. my name is wal. some called me wally at that time, days before it meant silly git pmsl. others at the time were, frank parish head doorman, indian called gammy or summut like that, Winston,  Ronnie heggarty ( passed away last year ). loads of others. I left and went to other nightspots around the country then into close protection. there was a reunion of sorts 3yrs ago I didn't go. some good days before the bullshit clocked on. I don't think bren was there for long, decent doorman. we opted to be called attendants then, still bouncers though. haha.

Just 'avin a quiet night in looking at Marmalade videos on youtube and my thoughts turned to great nights at Baileys. Can't believe what I used to do in those days; leaving Ibstock and calling for my mate Geoff at Blaby, having a 'skinful' and dropping him back home before returning to mine about 3am. So loved Jimmy Ruffin, I saw him 3 times in a week! - think he'd broken or badly sprained his foot at the time. Was anyone at one of Alvin Stardust's shows when he made a point of mentioning his lead guitarist who was around 16 or 17 at the time; often wondered who he was and what he became?

I was Chairmen of the Board's sound guy on a UK tour in the mid seventies and we did a week's residency at Bailey's Leicester. Stayed at the Holiday Inn and had a great week. I remember the MC's assistant called Tricia. Prettiest girl I ever saw.
