Phil Gill… OK folks, this is an ORIGINAL 1973 poster, not a reproduction, advertising Hastings Carnival and Gary Glitter show in Alexandra Park. It’s in top condition, no fading at all and was acquired by my then wife to be, in 1973, when she attended the show. Fairly sure there will be some collectors on here – anyone know what it might be worth, taking into account that the star turn may now be somewhat tainted?
Sheila Maile… I was there in the park.missed last bus home & started to walk .got to Battle & got picked up by police.had 10 yr old brother with me.they thought we had run away from home so they gave us a lift back to Netherfield
Phil Gill… Here’s a question…does the Gary Glitter aspect make it more, or less attractive to a collector?
Alan Esdaile… I would think a lot less. What might be worth trying is to contact Omega Auctions as they seem to get the best prices at auction for music memorabilia. https://www.omegaauctions.co.uk
Steve Blackman… Went to that show!
Tony Court-holmes… missed it living in the States at the time
Martin Curcher… My first gig at the age of 8. Family ticket was a Pound and 1.50 at the gate
Mick Turner… Great Show,even though it rained in the evening. I liked his music and he played on even though there was a danger of being electrocuted, had to admire him for that
Peter Howard… Spare a thought for my mate who got a Rolf Harris tattoo in the 90s, on his leg thankfully, and he never goes to swimming pools
John Gale… Peter, “Can you tell what it is yet? ”
Mick O’Dowd… I was billed in the programme as Stage Manager (Hastings). Spent the previous night in a caravan with Chris Gentry backstage as security. We didn’t need it as there was the mother of all storms . Played footie with the Glitter Band when they arrived in the afternoon. Nice bunch of guys.
