Last Week On Tour 6/11 - 9/11...

Wow, what a week! Firstly last Thursday we appeared in a huge charity show to over 1400 people in Barnsley alongside the Bachelors and a whole host of comedy legends including Cannon and Ball, Jimmy Cricket, Billy Pierce and the Grumbleweeds. Hanging out backstage was none other than Paul Shane (AKA Ted Bovis) of "Hi Di Hi" fame.

Saturday saw our first appearance at the Middleton Civic Centre. It was also our last as they are knocking it down in January. However all is well because they have built a bigger and better replacement already and I'm sure we'll be back there in the new year. Big thanks to Ian and Sheilagh Harltey for not only their help on the night but also 3 nights of great tea and crumpets!

Sunday saw us on a loooong drive down to the 10th anniversary Party Weekender in Warmwell. Great fun as always to see so many people on the dance-floor. Some of them were even dancing!
