Big Al - you will find John Waller very helpful and encouraging and the club welcoming. Prior to turning professional, Julie Ellison did attended a singaround at the club and from that was booked for a featured support. From that came a full booking and a very successful gig.
There are many other performers who have made this progression at the topic (there was a close harmony group - I think called Wench All - at that same singaround and they certainly had a featured support and - I think - a full booking as a result).
The Topic is an excellent club and deserves support.
Oh - and full credit to the landlord (Eamon) who spent money putting in facilities for disabled customers.
