After the success of our initial call out for music stories and memories from our city we have decided to set up a new archive for the people of Wolverhampton (past and present) to share their stories and memories of music culture in our glorious city.

We want you to help us shine a light on Wolverhampton’s great musical heritage. To keep alive the great stories and memories of our combined musical past, creating an archive which is not only inspiring today, but will inspire the future generations of tomorrow.

Please share your stories, memories and photos of the bands, musicians, venues, seminal gigs, record shops, nightclubs, club nights, the characters and any surrounding memories that help tell and construct a comprehensive story of our city’s great musical history.

You will find this archive over on Facebook or alternatively you can email us your memories.
