Laurel and HarDay

 

Don’t forget the Laurel and HarDay in Wigan - only a few days away! It is sure to be a resounding success, as always.

If any Grand Sheik would like a digital copy of Laurel & Hardy’s Road to Laughter to show at meetings, drop me a message.

Back at the Panopticon  (But not yet!) 

 

The Call of the Cuckoos Tent will be bringing Laurel and Hardy movies back to the Britannia Panopticon Music Hall in Glasgow on Wednesday 6th April 2022, starting at 7.00pm. We expect any pandemic concerns to have subsided by then! We will be enjoying Block-Heads and a few specially selected shorts. It will be fantastic to renew our regular screenings in the company of enthusiastic audiences – we have desperately craved for that for a couple of years. 

In the meantime it is worth mentioning that the Blockheads Tent have resumed monthly meetings in Edinburgh and all are welcome. Contact Charlie Lewis at lewiscbl260@btinternet.com

The Bonnie Scotland Tent continues with monthly virtual meetings and again all are welcome to come along. Contact Janice Hawton at chonziecats@yahoo.co.uk

One Good Turn Tent of Huddersfield

 

I think we have found our new home. George and I went down to The Sportsman pub on St John's Road and had a couple of beers. The staff (Josie) was very friendly and helpful, coming to top up our glasses regularly. They take card payments, there is a wifi and a suitably sized side room where we can set up our kit. There is no charge for the room, and it is very close to the railway station for our travellers. There's even a beer called "Out West”.

So we've taken the plunge and booked for Tuesday 14th September at 7:30 pm. This equates to the second Tuesday but whether this will remain the case we will see, going forward.

Pinball

 

As something of a 'pinball wizard' (make a good name for a song that, eh?) in my college years, I just had to share this.

 

Apparently, it's a 1975 Bally pinball game with graphics highlighting figures from the Golden Era of Hollywood film including W.C. Fields, Laurel & Hardy, Humphrey Bogart, Edward G. Robinson, Frankenstein and more. Very nice!
