Band on the Wall Memories Appeal

Band on the wall is currently celebrating 80 years since its first recorded music license was granted in 1932. To coincide with this Band on the Wall is asking for your help to contribute your memories, pictures, print, audio and film to its growing archive.

If you have any pictures, film audio or memories of Band on the Wall – especially any from before the mid-1970s when it traded as the George & Dragon pub – please let us know as you will be contributing, expanding and preserving this important building’s history.

If you feel you have anything to contribute, please get in touch with Ian Croal, Band on the Wall’s Archive Manager (and CEO 1981 – 2009), by emailing him at
