POMPEY POP

The Way to the Sea

Here’s a You Tube screening of the first half of a 15 minute documentary made in 1936 about the road from London to Portsmouth. There’s a brief ‘advert’ break on behalf of the electricity board but otherwise it’s rather fabulous depiction of Pompey through the ages with a prescient sense of foreboding towards the end (which can also be found in part two on You Tube). The music is by Benjamin Britten, the commentary by WH Auden

THIS WEDNESDAY at the FOUNTAIN

We’re all set for another Vocal and Instrumental night at The Fountain. We’ve added more Beatles numbers and will be using my modified Stratocaster and my new Taylor guitar! We hope you can pop along.

We aim to have a Guest Artist as usual and the Guys will also be using some fine authentic instruments, including Rickenbackers! Hope to see you on Wednesday night!

The Fountain Inn can be found at: 34 The Green, Rowlands Castle, Hampshire, PO9 6AB

We’ll start playing at around 8:30pm and will wrap it up at 10:30.

Kind regards
