The era defined by glam rock and industrial action is set to be immortalised in the new ‘Dirty Stop Out’s Guide to 1970s Barnsley’ .
The book celebrates the decade dominated by venues like Club Ba-Ba and The Londoner, and the heyday of Barnsley’s Civic Theatre.
Author Nik Farah said: “It was the era of questionable fashion, go-go dancers, glam rock and industrial action. What’s more, it was a time of community, a time when everyone knew everyone else – especially in a town like Barnsley.
“The early seventies was a prosperous time for Barnsley. The sheer variety of venues on offer in the 1970s totally dwarfs what there is today – pubs, Working Mens’ Clubs, nightclubs, bingo halls and so much more.
“My favourite quote comes from one chap I spoke with, who said: ‘these young people today think they invented misbehaving, they have no idea the kind of things we got up to!’
