Re: professional boxing
The records of some well known professional boxers from Jarrow - Bill Brennan (Danny Griffin), Soldier Carr, and Peter Cain reveal that none of their bouts during the 1920's took place in Jarrow. St James's Hall in Newcastle, Tyne Dock Coliseum and South Shields Casino seemed to have been regular venues.
In the 1930's Jarrow's Municipal Hall is mentioned a number of times as a venue.
