The Farx Club at Elm Court

The Farx Club opened at Elm Court on 17th January 1970. Opposite is the poster for the opening night. It attracted some big bands. See the complete list below. There was another Farx Club in Southall.

It closed on 15th April 1972, apparently following pressure from local residents. If you know more about the club we would be please to hear from you.
