Remembering Peter Stringfellow's King Mojo

Posted

January 2018 is an anniversary thousands of King Mojo fans would rather forget- it marks 50 years since their beloved Sheffield venue closed its doors for the very last time.

Originally opening in spring of 1964, King Mojo’s influence has transcended generations. Not bad for Peter Stringfellow’s teenage club that didn’t even have an alcohol licence! Here’s a few pics to enjoy from the ‘Dirty Stop Outs Guide to 1960s Sheffield’ - read more about it here: http://www.acmretro.com/dirty-stop-outs-guide-to-1960s-sheffield/

RIP King Mojo - spring 1964 -December 1967.
