6. Description Abstract These new entertainment venues soon drew the attention of the authorities and the mainstream press. Soon after it opened, The Discotheque was accused of being the centre of London’s trade in amphetamines and a haven for runaways and other undesirable types. Perceptions of The Discotheque were soon being applied by a ‘shocked’ press to any other venue that offered the nation’s youth a place to dance to the new style of music: discos had barely arrived on British streets before they were being seen by some as a debauched threat to the moral and physical well-being of Britain’s youth, just like the Pleasure Gardens and Penny Gaffes before them. The beginning of the British disco scene was the beginning of conflicting images of discos as desirable, stylish, fashionable, drug-sodden, dangerous and degenerate.
