The Whitcombe Lodge was a popular cabaret venue in the early 1970’s. It was located in austere Second World War buildings that were once used as a military hospital. The Cheltenham Chase Hotel now occupies the site. A promotional poster for the Whitcombe Lodge (note spelling) advertises the special star attraction ‘Direct from Los Vegas world famous recording star Matt Monro.’ Tickets varied in price from 15/- to 35/-. Other famous acts to appear at the Whitcombe Lodge included comedian Dave Allen, Max Wall, Guy Mitchell, Bob Monkhouse, Frank Ifield, Lonnie Donegan, Hermans Hermits and Freddie and the Dreamers.
