Pontins Entertainment - Paper Lace

Paper Lace

Formed in 1969 in the lace city of Nottingham, England – Paper Lace were just one of hundreds of bands looking for the big time. Their big break came in 1974, when after winning the nationwide talent show “Opportunity Knocks”, they were spotted by the songwriting team of Mitch Murray & Peter Callander. The first single “Billy – Don’t Be A Hero” topped the U.K. charts for 3 weeks in March 1974. The follow up single,”The Night Chicago Died” hit the number one slot on both the U.S.& Canadian charts [#3 in the U.K]. An album – ” Paper Lace and Other Bits of Material” followed. The 3rd. single release “The Black Eyed Boys” narrowly missed the U.K. top 10 [#11]. In 1978 Paper Lace had a top 20 version of “We’ve Got the Whole World in Our Hands” in conjunction with local football team Nottingham Forest F.C. The Paper Lace line-up now has a collective 68 years service!
