GUEST,Graham Bradshaw Maudslay Thursday - a new Coventry venue (18) RE: Maudslay Thursday - a new Coventry venue 19 Dec 08


We, Sneak's Noise, ran the Burnt Post from 1977 to 1986. Universally regarded as one of the best clubs in the Midlands at the time.
Closed in 1986. A couple of people had a go at re-opening during the 90s, but never really took off.
Main problem was the pub itself, and one of the reasons why we closed it. Being a managed house, the managers used to change fairly frequently. We were lucky with some great gaffers, but latterly, it all started to go downhill. It was re-classified by the brewery as a 'training pub', which meant we started getting managers who were just passing through, and usually had no concept about folk clubs, and saw it as a nuisance.
This remains the case, and I believe the upstairs room has now been turned into offices/training facility.
On the other hand, there is the Maudslay pub, which has a great upstairs room, and is the venue for the new Maudslay Thursday venture started by Duellingbouzoukis.
Well worth checking out if you are returning to/visiting Coventry. I am sure details of upcoming gigs will be posted here!!
