Side Saddle Country Club, in Doncaster, South Yorkshire


The Side Saddle Country Club isn't here any more, it was closed and boarded up in the 1980's and now it's a lovely housing estate called Riverside Gardens on the edge of Auckley.

But it was that Shirley Bassey made her first cabaret performance outside of the West End. She sent her wigs to be crimped in the Andre Bernard salon in Doncaster.

The building was a country club before being turned into a renowned night club by it's Italian owner in the 1970's. It could cater for 250 at it's functions and top-class cabaret appeared most nights of the week.

The owner built a casino upstairs which they never got a license for.

It briefly became Rigsby's before closing forever.
