There will be more about Robert Bob Wilson in The Hidden Years Story; but briefly, his connection to 3rd Ear Music & the Durban music scene was significant. Bob was a motivator & mover for many Durban musicians in the 60's & early 70's. He was one of the founding members of the Natal Folk Music Association, participating in & helping produce a number of those legendary Annual Folk Festivals. Bob came out to Durban from Glasgow as a young journalist & worked for a number of years with the Argus Group - The Daily News & The Sunday Tribune. Bob initiated the Totum at the Palm Beach Hotel - which Brian Finch & David Marks ran for a number of years; joined later by Welshmen Richie Morris & Brian Gibson. Bob was responsible for a number of very good folk, jazz, rock & cabaret clubs, most notably the Switch on the Berea & The Mayfair Supper Club. He married New Zealander Robyn - also a journalist - in 1972 & left for London soon after that.
BLEEDING HEART YARD (Notes by Robyn Wilson)
The assembled partygoers assumed the couple had kissed and made up but no. At dawn the body of Lady Hatton was found in the courtyard behind the stables "torn from limb" with her heart "still pumping blood onto the cobblestones". From that day forth the Yard was known as Bleeding Heart Yard. Charles Dickens, whose Plornish family lived within the Yard, speaks of the yard's gory history in his novel Little Dorritt.
THE BLEEDING HEART RESTAURANT opened in the cellars below the Yard in 1983 THE BLEEDING HEART BISTRO in 1996. THE BLEEDING HEART TAVERN, on the corner of the Yard, which first traded in 1746 was restored in 1998.
THE CRYPT IN ELY PLACE
The 12th Century Crypt, which seats up to 150 in Medieval splendour, is situated in Ely Place next door to Bleeding Heart Yard. It was the setting for the wedding celebrations of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon in 1531 which lasted for three full days and nights.
