The entrance still exists in Pudding Lane-Star House

I remember going to a Star dance hall in Maidstone in the 60s but not sure if it was part of a hotel. I do remember getting thrown out by the bouncers for a misdemeaner of some kind... probably smiled at some thugs girlfriend. :)

If that was the Royal Star Hotel, it still exists as part of the Royal Star Arcade shopping centre.

We never seem to get anything on Maidstone on the KHF! However, on a Saturday night, this dance hall was the meeting place of the RAF West Malling during WW2, & probably long after. My wife also went there from 1945 onward, every Saturday without fail for they got some good bands & it was always packed. Is it still there, for I now live 150 miles away?
