Default Venue information

I'm hoping someone can supply with an address, postal code or the GPS coordinates for a few venues, some of which may not even exist anymore - and perhaps they never did as a couple I'm unable to find any information about them at all. The venues are:

1. The Top Rank Suite - Reading, England, UK
2. Mainichi Hall - Osaka, Japan
3. Aichi Kinro Kaikan - Nagoya, Japan
4. Mido Kaikan Hall - Osaka, Japan
5. Festival Pavilion - Skegness, England, UK
6. The Spa Hall - Harrogate, England, UK

Any help is much appreciated! Ultimately what I'm looking for is the GPS coordinates of where they are or were.

searching the local council's planning to see what was built in it's place might be an idea.

check this for harrogate since the diagram shows three halls at least

Interesting. From that I've been able to get the general vicinity the venue was at, but still unable to get the exact spot. I've sent off an email to one of the theatre's in the area that is referenced in a tourist website to send email inquiries to for tourist information. Hopefully they'll be able to supply me with the GPS coordinates or something that I can use to look them up for myself.

I know there's a habit of re-naming old venues when they are knackered and then done up and re-opened maybe that's what has gone on in skegness and harrogate. I thought there were more top ranks than this lists

There were a lot more Top Ranks than on that list - there was one in Sheffield for a start and Doncaster for another.
