Edwards No 8
Known to most Rockers in the Country as EDDIES, “Edwards No.8” was at the centre of Birmingham’s Rock and Gothic scenes for over 20 years, and was Birmingham’s last remaining & true, Rock venue until it tragically burnt down a little after 1am on November 12th 2006. In the late 80’s it was the heart of a thriving Rock complex, which comprised two pubs/bars, a second club (“Edwards No.7”) located immediately beneath it, and another club named “Goldwyns” next door in an adjacent building. In common with all clubs it had it’s ups and downs (particularly in the late 90’s), but unlike it’s competitors it survived and was all the stronger for it’s ordeal.
