    Hello all

    First post, and possibly a slightly obscure one! In short, can anyone identify the location of the accompanying image?

    The date is early 1977, and the guy is part of the the pop/rock group 'Sweet'. I strongly suspect that this may be at Shepperton Studios but cannot get confirmation from any of the photographers present. Folklore says this, and several other photos from the same event, were shot at a concert hall in Japan the previous summer but the gantry and what is possibly another walkway (wooden floor), look as though they would be more at home in a film studio, and I know the group did rehease at Shepperton later on in the year. There is also other evidence that points to the location being somewhere in the London area.

    Any thoughts on this gratefully received.

    Brad

    P.S. I've had to compress the original pic so don't know if the background detail has been significantly reduced in clarity.

    I'm wondering if it could be Bray?

    Many thanks for the reply and link Simon - and apologies for the delay but I have been unable to access the forum for a month or so. Tied in with some other info I have this probably now confirms Bray as the venue! Excellent.

    No problem. I've worked on stage 1 at Bray, so when I saw the gantry in you photo (to which you alluded in your original post) I felt reasonably confident even before checking the link.
