Acker Bilk autograph programme – Hastings Pier 26th May 1962

Supplied by Anthony ‘Nan’ Morland

Ray Nickson… I seem to recall that he also played at the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill sometime in 1979

Colin Bell… I don’t think he’d want to be ‘ a stranger on the shore’ the last couple of days!

Lloyd Johnson… In 1962 Anthony ‘Nan’ Moreland and I went to see Acker Bilk on The Pier…Nan wanted his autograph but had to leave early so asked if I could get Acker Bilk’s autograph for him and gave me the Souvenir photo above.I waited by the dressing room door left of the stage and when he came out to leave I got the Autograph for Nan….Nan and I sat next to each other for most of our school days and remain friends to this day…
