The Fiesta Club Sheffield

Recommended Posts

I worked there as restaurant cashier in 1972 for a few months. I remember the Carpenters Rainy Days and Mondays always seemed to be played while we were getting ready to open. I still have an autographed photo of the Spinners addressed to `poor tired Sue` because that was my frequent complaint when it got to around 2am. Bob Monkhouse and Tommy Cooper really were brilliant.

I must know you, do you remember me Wendy? I worked there from 1971 for a few years - what is your name? I remember once when Bernard Manning was on stage and someone threw a laughing bag on my tray as I was walking round - I tried everything to make it stop, he got so angry he said "if you don't turn that off I will shove it up your ******* ar**! how rude is that?

Hiy Kath, I have distant memories of Linda going out there now! I remember Yvonne very well, we played in the football team together, the last one she played in she was about to have her first baby - she was huge! In fact I have a photo of us all somewhere with the Real Thing do you remember we used to follow them around everywhere?

Hi Wendy yes I do remember the game I had married by then but still come into the club to see everyone and for the free drinks. Yes I do remember following the Real Thing poor jim lipthorpe used to go mad as I always needed to go home to Middlesbrough if the group had a gig in any of the Northen clubs. Did you come to the Fiesta christmas party in Stockton when Jim and Keith put the bus on for us. do you remember Alan Spangler he come to the Fiesta from baileys clubs and Roger I remember he broke his leg quite badly.I used to live with Alan Mayes he played with the Roy orbison Band when I worked at the club we shared a flat with Kathy a waitress from the club. and do you remember Bob Monday he was compare for a short time.

I do remember the christmas party, I broke the heel from my boot, they were bright green with huge platforms! I went up to Stockton a few times. Alan Spangler rings a bell, can't remember him breaking his leg tho. Do you remember Dot Sloane from Newcastle who worked there at the same time as me? can't place Bob Monday. I remember we used to get mini buses everywhere to follow the real thing, ha ha.
