The Caird Hall's wee sister next door. Room for around 400/500.
In the mid 70's this place was bustling with Soul crews who organised Northern Soul All-nighters. The Marryat then gained quite a reputation for being one of the better venues on the Soul circuit and was visited by enthusiasts from all over the UK.
Moving into the late 70's - early 80's, the Marryat hosted a spate of indie and rock gigs. Some of the acts that performed live were - Theatre of Hate - Echo & the Bunnymen - Girlschool - Rezillos - Hanoi Rocks, to name just a few. And finally, a wee reminder for all vinyl addicts - yes we've not been killed off just yet - there are regular Record Fairs held at the Marryat Hall too. What better way to spend your time, and dosh!!
