Laughing Gravy Tent at Christmas
A fantastic turnout out of around 140 people at Thursday's Christmas tent meeting (7th December). Santa handed out a few gifts to all the 'Brats' who were in the room. One last meet up in the Charlie Hall to celebrate a great year for Laughing Gravy.
Our 2017 Laughing Gravy Annual can now be viewed online on our website www.laughinggravytent.co.uk, 24 pages which include 'Discovering Dennis King' the UK and European convention reports, Sons-Doh-Ku, Wigan's 25th Laurel & HarDay, tributes to Pete Brodie and Lois Laurel and meeting my heroes Ken Dodd and Count Arthur Strong.
