On the ‘BIG’ Day


You can give IT a miss by coming with me to Hove, to watch Hampshire v Sussex or

You can catch TUXEDO JUNCTION at the Hampshire Hog in Clanfield from 1pm

And if that’s not enough fun, they’re at Bar 69 in Palmerston Road on Sunday, 2pm – 5pm.

  1. Or, if you’re really desperate, you could throw a pot of paint at a wall, sit there and watch it dry.

  2. 10.15 am Saturday. Sitting near the Dock of the Bay in Hove, watching the cricketers warm up. My one observation about the other ‘event’ is that I hope it ends 0-0 and they miss all the penalties – oh and that other event, one thing I learned this morning is that they have chosen for the music Ben E King’s “Stand By Me” and the Impressions’ “Amen”. You see you can NEVER escape the Birdcage, especially on a Saturday.

    • I have to say, I’ve never heard Stand by Me performed so well as the gospel choir’s version, superb stuff ! Pity I missed Amen, I was probably getting prettied (?) up for my afternoon gig…..

  3. If this was the dreaded facebook I’d give the last comment a “LIKE”. Superb! My friend Al Straughan and I keep saying we must catch T.Junction at our old stamping groundThe Auckland.
