The last part of the old George Ballroom with it’s entrance on Horsefair is soon to be redeveloped as a 7 storey building converted into 44 apartments. The rear of the building along with the Bounty back extension,no longer used by the pub,is to be demolished to make way for the new development.
The original Theatre and Ballroom entrance was lost in the 60’s when the Edwards Centre was built!

The Promoter at that time was Arthur Kimbrell and there is a blue plaque to him knocking around somewhere in town. Norman Wisdom,Julie Andrews and other big stars of those days had graced the theatre stage there in the past!

Can you remember Harold the George barman,Micky? He was always a little bit “inebriated” to say the least. He lived somewhere off Lychgate Lane in Burbage. One night he drove home on his moped and they found him the next morning at the bottom of a hole in the road outside the Bulls Head. He’d gone clean through the barriers!
