Great Yarmouth - The Royal Aquarium
Posted by ROGER RETTIG on September 20, 2008, 2:36 pm, in reply to "Re: Fan Club membership"
Those are some nice memories for you!
That was the same year that I - and two friends from the skiffle group I'd formed from pals in the 10th Muswell Hill Scout Troop - hitched-hiked from north London to Yarmouth. We slept on the roadside outside Norwich and made our destination early that morning.
All the way I'd clutched my copy of 'Lonnie Rides Again', and I still have it - signed by Lonnie, Les Bennetts and Pete Huggett (where was Nick, I now wonder?)! I remember 'Battle Of New Orleans' being the highlight of the show, too. (I do have a programme from the show, but I got it on Ebay - it's not the one I got at the time...)
Years and years later I was 'at the end of the pier' myself; doing the '97 Summer Season on guitar and steel with Freddie Starr at the Britannia Theatre. Some of us went to the Aquarium to see a late-night film, and it was spooky going back to that venue all that time later.
I remember the Lagonda - and the Daimler, and the Riley 2.6! He had a refined taste in quality British motor-cars, didn't he?
