I have many happy memories of the Aston Hip, and saw many famous people there. One unusual one was 'Jane' the cartoon girl from the daily Mirror.
Hi Leonard.. Thats a shock if George did apear at the Aston Hippodrome as it was a Fred Butterworth Theatre.. He was Tight in the Wallet.. so was Beryl.. Then again Moss-Empire stopped booking top artists... Max Miller.. Laural & Hardy.. The Crazy Gang... Hope you get the proof )As a member of the George Formby Society, I know that George played at the hip. Does anyone have any evidence or billboars/programmes so I can show our November convention. If there are any Banjolele lovers out there then contact me.
