from the Ritz Cinema, Belfast
It was at the Rialto Ballroom, Liverpool, that Billy Cotton , world-famous dance-band leader, built up the reputation that brought him his first West-End engagement in London-at the Astoria, Charing Cross Road. Later he went to the Locarno at Streatham, and then to the West End again, to Ciro's Club. In 1931 he began his stage show at the Alhambra Theatre.
