A plea has been sent for people over 50 to dig in their attics, wardrobes, cupboards or even shoe boxes to find memorabilia about the good old days of music at Marcam Hall or the Cellar Club in March.
The town’s library are hoping music fans may unearth some treasured memories they are willing to give to the museum from clothing to old records, fliers or posters.
Inspired by the recent book “Dancing at Marcam Hall” written by Kevin Rodgers, the March Museum want to put together items from that well known venue of the 60’s and 70’s.
A library spokesman said: “Apart from the top bands like The Who and The Kinks there were singers like Tom Jones, Adam Faith and Billy Fury who appeared at Marcam Hall.
“The Cellar Club opened its doors in 1966 and a very popular visitor was Kenny Ball and his Jazzmen. A preliminary heat of the beauty competition Miss Anglia in 1965 was filmed there for Anglia Television.

“There was wrestling, roller skating, a talent competition which ran for several years and bingo.”
