Dance at Brotton (1930’s)

Ever wondered what your grandparents did on an evening (apart from make clippie mats)? Well, they danced to live entertainment. This is the old (wooden) Church Hall in Brotton which Neil Abram tells us: ”the old parish hall was NOT in the church grounds but the other side of the “black ash” footpath…. about where St Margarets Way is now”. Alan Franks tells us: ”My mam and dad are on this photograph, dad is right at the back off centre right, and mam sat at the front next to the man off centre right again. I don’t think they were married then, they married in 1935 I think.”
