The stars who shone at La Strada

The Seekers.
The Seekers.

The stars were shining brightly when South Shields played host to many of the top entertainers of the sixties.

And we feature some familiar faces from the past in today’s picture spread, the photos of which have been provided by David Golden and brothers Rob and Tom Quinn, who were the road manager and group members of The Crusaders, who regularly played at La Strada (the town’s first nightclub) along with Tommy Flynn, who was the venue’s official photographer.

Please get in touch with your memories of the stars featured, and any others who you remember appearing at La Strada.
