Paris Lounge

By Trevor Chepstow

This series of photographs shows the opening of the newly refurbished "Paris Lounge" at the Sports Stadium by Mrs Helen Arnold, wife of the famous impresario Tom Arnold.

The Lounge was refurbished in the mid-fifties and was a favourite meeting place for many local people.  The bar was situated on the first floor to the left of the main entrance and must have been considered the height of modernity in its day.

Mrs Arnold was a regular visitor to the Sports Stadium and was instrumental in co-producing many of the shows produced there by her husband Tom Arnold and his associates
