Venue clarification: the database has Fishmongers Hall as the venue.

The official LZ site shows a scan of an ad for this date, which is indeed headed "Fishmongers Hall" but gives the address as Fishmongers Arms, 287 High Road, Wood Green, N22, whereas the actual Fishmongers Hall is the rather grand head office of the Worshipful Company of Fishmongers, next to London Bridge Smile

I recommend changing the venue name to Fishmongers Arms (and it would be consistent with lists for other acts that played the same venue).

Here's an ad for the 12/20/68 Fishmongers show:

They use both Fishmongers Hall and Fishmongers Arms in the ad.

Here's a photo of the correct Fishmongers Arms located at 287 High Road, Wood Green, London. This picture was taken a few years ago, just before it closed shop as the pub O'Rafferty's:

Here are two photos of the other Fishmongers Hall in London where the band did NOT play (front/back):

Nice find.Wink

I'll rename the venue to Fishmongers Arms just to avoid confusion.

Following changes will be reflected in Version 1.1.

Renamed venue 'Fishmongers Hall' to 'Fishmongers Arms'
