Laurel & Hardy Sondayz 2018
We are delighted to let you know that the Laurel & Hardy Sondayz 2018 is still in full progress. We will get the final call of the Edeweis Buben, an Alpen/tiroler orchestra of 16 musicians who have said they would love to light up the party on the Sunday of the Sondayz while we have the BBQ and party evening. Fingers crossed, instead of eyes that they are willing to perform for a bunch of Sons!
In the meantime, there are about 33 tickets left. If you have decided to come over to the Netherlands to party with us but haven't registered yet, please do this in time as from December hotels will be tough to book. It would be ideal to have everyone in the same hotel but as there is a huge horse riding event in town that same weekend the hotels will be fully booked by horseback riders and staff. So, If you like to come over and party with us on this event in the spirit of Laurel & Hardy, make sure you'll book in time. You only have to sign up and we make sure we book the hotel for you (rooms are 2 persons ¤ 53 / single ¤57). The sondayz tickets are for sale at ¤130 for the weekend.
I hope you'll forgive this shameless plug for a forthcoming event with which I'm involved. It's called THE 2ND SILENT LAUGHTER SATURDAY.
It's a special all-day event devoted to silent comedy at the Cinema Museum in Kennington, which of course has become the regular venue for both the Live Ghost Tent and the Buster Keaton society, The Blinking Buzzards. The address is 2 Dugard Way, Kennington, London SE11 4TH.
The event is on Saturday 11th November and is one of the events organised by Kennington Bioscope, a group that presents silent films with live accompaniment. Full details, including admission, are available at www.kenningtonbioscope.com.
This is the programme for the day (subject to tweaks!):
09:45 FEATURE: FLYING LUCK (1927) starring Monty Banks
Reporter seeks help
Janice Hawton has been contacted by Bill Gibb of the Sunday Post. He is looking to do an article to tie in with the Steve Coogan film. The proposed date of the article is 29 October.
Janice says, "He has spoken to Mark at the museum and John Connolly. He is aware Stan would reply to folk who wrote to him, and is especially interested in Scots who were recipients of letters from Stan. He thought this angle might be different from the usual things about the Boys - and is open to other suggestions."
If anyone can help, contact Bill on firstname.lastname@example.org. His mobile is 07711375343.
Be Big Tent
At our October meeting 14 people watched the silent film 'Forty-Five Minutes From Hollywood', the feature film 'Pack Up Your Troubles' and the Ronnie Barker & Roy Castle 30 minute TV pilot 'Another Fine Mess' from Barker's series 'Seven of One'. It was great to see Austin Stigwood back with us after a bout of ill health. Our next meeting will be on Monday 20 November 2017 at Ashton under Lyne Cricket Club. Film show begins at 8.00pm. All welcome.
