Hi everyone, no doubt the majority of members here are familiar with this famous Beatles gig venue in Aldershot back in 1961.
I have established that the Palais Ballroom was located on the corner of Perowne Street and Queens Road but i am looking for a photograph of the original building.
The location for this venue often gets mixed up with another building near by but i have been told that it is this one on the corner.
Indeed i believe that what you see here is the original building but a car park now stands to the rear where the stage and part of the dance floor would have been.
Does anyone know what the building looked like back in 1961?
I would be most grateful

And From Sgt Pepper To Break Up
Thanks for your photos and thanks to everyone who has read this post.
I have seen the photographs from this gig and some of them are really good quality. Wonderful stuff.
It seems no photographs are available of the exterior in its original form.
I am still not 100% convinced this is indeed the building because every now and then someone comes along and says that its the ' other ' location.
The ' other ' location being the white building further along - see attachments photo below.
Hopefully something will turn up.
By hook or by crook, I'll be last in this book.
