Walk of Fame for King’s Heath

"A Walk of Fame is to be created along York Road to celebrate King’s Heath’s musical and comic heritage that will include a specially commissioned floral display featuring a guitar and microphone.

York Road has been chosen because it contains the Hare and Hounds where UB40 and Frank Skinner started their careers and the Cash Converters building which was previously the Ritz Ballroom – one of 4 ballrooms run in the 1960’s by Irish husband and wife team Mary (Ma) and Joe (Pa) Regan – where most of the famous groups and artists of the 1960’s played."
