The Gliderdrome

Perhaps one of the most historic music venues in the UK with a rich and diverse heritage.   Acts such as Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, Elton John, T-Rex all played here.   The Beatles almost did – they famously wanted a fee of £80, which was deemed far to much money by the venue and so they turned them down.  The Gliderdrome still hosts acts today.
