THE ARCHIVE: Grapevine

Pages from Grapevine. This monthly publication detailed cultural happens in Birmingham. A listings magazine very much of the time. These pages are from both the early A5 version and later A4, more professionally printed editions. The listings sections have enabled us to compile a list of gigs that were advertised at various city centre venues around the early 1970s.

Here’s a list of gig at Henry’s Blueshouse (The Crown, Station Street) from the first issue until October 1972 when it became ‘Enery’s.
