Celebrating Birmingham's Popular Music History
Lots of people mention this huge old pub as great Birmingham venue. Send us your memories, photo’s, flyers etc
Great (under-rated) venue run by Ivor and Chris and featuring DJ’s Ray T and Stevie D with the occasional band on the palm tree bedecked stage, although I believe they actually only had a music licence for two people.
Bring your own records in and the DJ’s would play your tracks for you which was a great way to get to listen to loads of great new music, I once had a bet with Ray T about the the Can single I Want More getting in the “Top 30” (I won yeah).
My wife and I managed the coften for a few years before Chris and ivor.where are they all now? Ray T Stevie D Ted fitzgerald and his band. Vincent mulkerns a great barman.We we’re sorry to here of the Coften been knocked down . We had many fond memories of our time at the Coften
