Friday 19th

Cliff Richard rents his own central London flat at 100 Marylebone High Street, North West London. Within weeks the spacious six-roomed apartment quickly becomes an occasional ‘crash pad’ for his backing group The Drifters and other members of the "Oh Boy!" cast who can't get to their homes in the sticks after gigs.

Its location was ideal for Cliff to attend “Oh Boy!” rehearsals and other London stage venues and in addition it was  within easy walking distance of his close friend Cherry Wainer’s flat and the famous Lotus House Chinese restaurant (where he often dined) in the Edgware Road.

Cliff’s mother and elder sister maintained the flat while Cliff was away working on whistle-stop tours around the country.

(See NME article dated 23rd January 1959 for feature on 'Cliff Richard’s New Flat.')
