The Perry Winkle


The latest Perry Winkle has arrived. As always, we marvel at how editor Roger Robinson and his team manage to come up with such original stuff time and time again.


Jitterbugs Tent of Dublin


Finally, after a period of more than two years, the Jitterbugs Tent of Ireland can resume our meetings...

We've a lot of pent-up fun to get off our chests. If you happen to be in Dublin, come along and join us for an afternoon of fun in the company of Stan and Ollie… all welcome.

Call of the Cuckoos Tent of Glasgow 

Cuckoos Come `Home

The Call of the Cuckoos Tent of Glasgow is well and truly back with a vengeance. Willie McIntyre says, “It will be lovely to meet up again with members when we return to the Panopticon in Glasgow on Wednesday 6th April. Please come along and make the start of our new season a night to remember at the music hall where Stan Laurel made his stage debut. As always, not only members, but friends and relations are most welcome. Our audiences include folk of all ages.”

All existing members of the Call of the Cuckoos Tent will be treated to FREE membership for 2022. It’s the tent’s way of celebrating its new freedom.

The Chumps had another splendid meeting  when we enjoyed Sailors, Beware!, Towed in a Hole, as well as Way Out West where coincidentally Stan calls Fin a Toad in a Hole! 


As well as the usual Pie n Peas, banter, raffle and delicious doughnuts donated by Neil F, we raised £50 for the Ukraine appeal and have also started a GoFundingMe page for the UK Sons, with full details here GoFundMe - Sons of the Desert. Thank you so much to those of you who have already donated - please help if you can, what is going on out there is horrendous.


Our April meeting is scheduled for Wednesday 13th same time, same place.

Room in the attic?


As some of you know, I have a cool collection of 8mm, Super 8, and 16mm projectors and film. I'm not sure what Mrs Muldowney would think if I brought this home... The first automated projector in Ireland.

Two years ago


Cast your mind back to our Home page of two years ago. Little did we suspect that our activities would be severely curtained for two years!
