Kevin Hilton… That really looks like a soup in a basket audience. They do seem to be enjoying the show, though.
John Warner… Met Tommy back in the 60’s when I was entertainment manager in Mr. Smith’s club in Manchester!
Paul Coleman… I’m sure I saw Tommy at a later date at Kings. I remember my dad telling me he met him in a bar in Eastbourne. Dad bought him a drink but he wouldn’t return the favour cos he’d had the pleasure of his company! Think he was in Eastbourne a few times as I believe a relative ran the magic shop in the town.
Alan Esdaile… Coopers Magic Shop in Eastbourne, I think it was run by his brother and yes he did appear at Kings in the 70’s, Paul.
Iain Cobby… Tommy to builder ” I want a skip outside the front of my house” ………..Builder to Tommy “Go on then!”
Dave Weeks… I saw him there in the late 70’s
Tim Moose Bruce… Story of him attending a dinner at the Winter Gardens. He sent his wife on ahead as he was running late. When he arrived, he wasn’t wearing any trousers. Walked up to his wife and asked her where they were.
Claire Triance… Went there a couple times 77
