Original 1984 All Trade Booking Contract
The Smiths : March 20 1984 @ The Tower Ballroom, Birmingham
Generously Posted on my facebook page by Martin Mullaney

Martins description
This is owned by Clive Whittaker.
Clive Whittaker booked the Smiths for two gigs:
3rd June 1983 @ The Fighting Cocks in Moseley & 20th March 1984 @ The Tower Ballroom, Birmingham.
Clive informs me that the gig at the The Fighting Cocks in Moseley was only 2/3 full and he lost a lot of money. As a result, The Smiths management gave him the Tower Ballroom gig cheaply as a means of recouping his loss.

I love this stuff.
24 lagers, 4 litres of orange juice, good quality brown bread meat and salad sandwiches for 8 people. Or am I reading that incorrectly?
Thank you for sharing.

I hope he provided meat sarnies and salad sarnies rather than meat and salad sarnies or I suspect a certain lanky bloke with a quiff wouldn't have been happy!
