On Saturday 2nd February 1985 the group on stage were MAGNUM. That was the third out of the five appearances they made at the Granary.

From the depths of the Granary Archives some long lost photographs have been unearthed showing the Club’s final DJ Adrian Coleman at work in the disco booth along with the much loved Granary DJ Glenn Daniel. Glenn tragically died from a heart attack several year ago. Glenn took over the disco when Al Read left in 1982 and it was Glenn, Adrian and DJ John Mason who looked after the rock on record through to the last night in 1988.
