Esmeralda's

Esmeralda's was the name given to the Sunday night gigs that happened in the hall of Bletchley Youth Centre in the early 70's. There were some great bands (and some not so great) that played there.

The following list is neither authoritative or complete. If you can verify, add or refute any entries please let me know.

If you have any memories or memorabilia of these gigs you would like to share please, don't be shy, this is living history, lets document it so others will know just how good (or otherwise) these times were!

Thanks to the generous spirit of Babs, Janice, Don and Larry who have sent me images of the tickets they have preserved.
