Welcome to the Ricky-Tick web site!
Dedicated to the memory of the Ricky-Tick Clubs in Windsor, Guildford and the surrounding areas in the 1960s.
A great book about the Ricky-Tick was published in July 2019 – Click here for more info.
Can you help, please?
We are now starting to add more pages to the site. These will include some information on the history of the Ricky-Tick clubs, some personal memories of people who were there, lists of dates/venues/artists appearing, memorabilia, etc. In particular, we would love to find any photographs taken at the time. The gig lists can now be seen here.
If you have anything that you would be willing to share or can help in any way, please email Martin.
In the meantime, here are some links you might like to try:-
Ricky-Tick on Wikipedia (a good potted history – but references to the appearances of The Supremes and The Temptations are incorrect.)
A clip from the film Blow Up (filmed in a replica of the Clewer Mead, Windsor Ricky-Tick built in Elstree Studios)
If you would like to hear some of the records that were played at the Windsor Ricky-Tick, please click here (Next radio show March 28 and next gig dates March 29 and 31).
