Between Sets at The Pre – 1988 Show!
Once again this week has whizzed by and I’m struggling to fit any more shows in for the year. I never thought I would say it but I appear to be fully booked and the few days I do have left seem to be taken up with hair appointments, travelling, meetings and video editing. 2022 is rapidly slipping away and I’m now concentrating on selling shows for 2023 and 2024 while enjoying the last few days of summer.

These days social media is such an important part of the way the world turns it’s important not to be left behind. Everything needs to be documented and I was very lucky that Tony was available to join me. Sometimes I find having to do photos on top of everything else I’m doing can be a little too much. Tony did me proud and I now have a wonderful collection of shots which are doing the social media rounds as we speak.

Tomorrow I’m performing for a private 1940s party in Wheathampstead and then it’s full steam ahead towards Battle of Britain Day on the 15th September. Today I performed two WAAF shows back to back and on Saturday 10th September I’m in Banbury performing at the RAF Club for their Battle of Britain Ball songs from the 1940s, 50s, 60s & 70s.
I shall leave you with a few of Tony’s photos from Monday’s Pre – 1988 show.
