Adelphi Club celebrates 25 years

Adelphi Club

Legend has it that the Adelphi Club's car park was created courtesy of the Luftwaffe.

The bomb hit a couple of neighbouring terraced houses on a residential street in west Hull.

Luckily, Number 89 was left unscathed but the space was made that now houses tour buses and punter's cars.

In 1984 this terraced house, having already survived the blitz on Hull and a spell as a working men's club, became The New Adelphi Club.

Over the following three decades owner Paul Jackson was to host hundreds of bands just starting out including Pulp, Green Day, Radiohead, The Housemartins and countless local bands who cut their teeth on the Adelphi stage.

As the Adelphi gears up for a month of celebrations, starting on October 1st, Paul wants to hear from bands, music lovers and anyone who has been a part of the Adelphi family over the past quarter of a century.

Paul and the Adelphi team are putting on a series of gigs at the club but also an exhibition and live performance at the Ferens Art Gallery. Concentrating on three classic Adelphi years, 1986, 1993 and 2000. Paul wants to hear from you if you were around at these times.

We would also like to see your photos and hear your memories of the venue held in such affection with gig-goers and bands alike. Were you in a band who played the Adelphi in its first few years?

Perhaps you played pool with Radiohead in the Adelphi front bar and want to re-live your memories? Do you remember Paul's gig-loving dog Yozzer, who used to follow bands to Hull's Spiders nightclub and then get put into a taxi home by the Spiders doorman?
