    I remember the King Hall well, from playing on the dodgems as a kid in the early 70′s to having my 21st Birthday Party there in 1984. I also saw Slade there and The Smiths (Preferred Slade).

    At the time it was demolished the excuse was that the building was unsafe and had been condemned. As I watched the wrecking ball bouncing off the reinforced concrete walls I wondered if there might be some other reason.

    The shops and apartments with their rusty balcony’s which replaced this iconic landmark are a poor substitute and the town is much poorer for it.
