Karen Sweatman… This was Christmas Eve. Centre Page appeared on Christmas Eve in the Yelton for a few years on the trot.
Andrew Reid McDuffie… Hold on……Is 1997 a long time ago now???
Karen Sweatman… Still seems like yesterday to me!
Andrew Reid McDuffie… Me too!
Dizz Corinne Ryder… I remember them from Mr Cherry’s in St.Leonards!
Gerry Fortsch… Dave was in hospital with my dad and they stayed friends. I knew him from The Suspect.
Robert Searle… Nice to see another photo of Dave Easton Centre Page
Angela Jordan… My Nan and grandad worked there years ago
Lance Collins… Worked a few times with Centre Page. Good days.
Mick O’Dowd… Loved that place. Good bands/atmosphere and a really great selection of people and assorted weirdos!
Karen Sweatman… I’m delighted to say that I fit the weirdo category!
Lance Collins… We have all grown up to socially acceptable responsible adults
Dave Nattress… Played the Yelton once with The Prisoners. Good gig. Dear old mate, Andy Leaney – (RIP) broke a string and then cut his finger, somehow, blood everywhere but like a trooper kept playing. But then Seasick Steve used to do well with 3 strings!
Gerry Fortsch… Always take new skin to a gig.

Alan McCann… It was actually ‘twinned’ in May 1971. Cannon had owned Hastings for a few years before starting an £1 million conversion to three screens, which commenced in 1984, but opened in June 1985.
Josie Lawson… My mum moved from the Orion cinema to the Classic Cinema – and worked there …I didn’t see much of her then as I moved away from Hastings in 1976 until I returned in 1987…
Tony Ham… Pearl & Dean adverts.
