Tofts was originally a Dance Studio & Youth Club operated by Harold and Doris Toft next to the old Pleasure Gardens Theatre on Bouverie Road West. The building was pulled down to make way for the Orion Insurance building in the early 1960's. The club was later called the Tofts Jazz Club and had over 6000 members and moved to Grace Hill in mid 1964.
The ground floor part was later occupied by various bars (Tom Brown`s, Cartoon, Toffs, Toby House, Heroes).

Room 6 held a party in 1989 on the ‘Zig Zag’ path on the old Toll road in Folkestone near to the Leas. If memory serves, the police stopped it fairly early into the night which was a shame. The DJ equipment etc was set up in one of the ‘caves’. It was an ideal venue and can’t think that anyone would have been disturbed due to its location.
Some pictures of the ‘Zig Zag’ path today (August 2010). The Toll road has now been closed and converted into a children’s adventure playground.
