Central Station pub sign, showing former name "Prince Albert"
The Prince Albert is a pub near King's Cross station, London, now called Central Station.

The Gay Liberation Front ran discos there up until 1975 [1]. The Alternative Gay Alliance and Icebreakers subsequently held discos at the pub, in the basement. In the summer of 1979 the Icebreakers disco moved to the Hemingford Arms, near Caledonian Road, London.
