Aston hippodrome

Not too sure the bit about M&B was too popular in Aston.:laughing: Anyway the old ads for the Aston Hippodrome are quite interesting.

Good stuff there, Rob. As far as I know, his son John is still alive, but I haven't been back to the UK since 2014. I'll check with a mate over there tomorrow.

Maurice :cool:

While I was in the Scouts, St Mary's 120th. A few from each troop would play in the annual Gang Show which was put on each year. It seemed we practiced a lot and spent a lot of time been acts in pretty seedy dressing rooms (of course we did not have star rooms), there were 8 or 10 of us in each room. Never did go to the Aston Hip to see anything though!
