    About 1977 maybe? I was a bromley punk at the time so I went along to boo hiss at prince Charles who opened it officially.

    Prior to this we'd had running battles with the police almost every saturday along bromley highstreet and we'd often nip through where the gardens were built and escape to Shortlands...

    We'd all meet at Napoleon record shop in station square and it would always kick off from there. Good memories :)

    Haha! Yes, I knew 'Napoleons' didn't sound right :D Over forty years ago now but good times :) there used to be a shoe shop half way down the high street on the left, it had a flat above it that was opened as a youth drop in called the Bromley Y Project. That was about the same time. Plus the Croydon greyhound on a Sunday night. And my local was the star and garter....

    Would be a real shame to loes the building to developers, especially at a time of Labour Party renewal

    ETA Just saw this in the link i posted (facepalm)
    The club closed its doors for the last time on July 22nd 2017. The premises will be demolished to make way for the continuing redevelopment of the Bromley South area.

    Very sad news.

    Yes, very sad. Lots of local groups used to play there and they had a cheap bar. I even saw Crass there in the 80s.

    bromley ...isn't as good as Lewisham.

    Very sad. Saw some good local bands and had a party there. Was also where the locals used to store their Mercury.
