Lovely little club.Its held in a pub called the North Briton.When I was there last I said " Its great that you remember the radical John Wilkes" - his portrait is on the pub sign - but they didnt, they'd never heard of him.So dont bother reprising your vast repertoire of Billy Bragg or Chumbawamba songs Dick!

John Wilkes (17 October 1725 – 26 December 1797) was an English radical, journalist and politician.

He was first elected Member of Parliament in 1757. In the Middlesex election dispute, he fought for the right of voters—rather than the House of Commons—to determine their representatives. In 1771 he was instrumental in obliging the government to concede the right of printers to publish verbatim accounts of parliamentary debates. In 1776 he introduced the first Bill for parliamentary reform in the British Parliament. During the American War of Independence he was a supporter of the American rebels adding further to his popularity with American Whigs. In 1780, however, he commanded militia forces which helped put down the Gordon Riots damaging his popularity with many radicals.

Wilkes's increasing conservatism as he grew older caused dissatisfaction among radicals and was instrumental in the loss of his Middlesex seat at the 1790 general election. At the age of 65, Wilkes retired from politics and took no part in the growth of radicalism in the 1790s following the French Revolution. During his life he earned a reputation as a libertine.
   I prefer William Morris[my hero]
William Morris (24 March 1834 – 3 October 1896) was an English textile designer, artist, writer, and socialist associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and the English Arts and Crafts Movement. He founded a design firm in partnership with the artist Edward Burne-Jones, and the poet and artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti which profoundly influenced the decoration of churches and houses into the early 20th century. As an author, illustrator and medievalist, he is considered an important writer of the British Romantic movement, helping to establish the modern fantasy genre; and a direct influence on postwar authors such as J.R.R. Tolkien. He was also a major contributor to reviving traditional textile arts and methods of production, and one of the founders of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings, now a statutory element in the preservation of historic buildings in the UK.

Morris wrote and published poetry, fiction, and translations of ancient and medieval texts throughout his life. His best-known works include The Defence of Guenevere and Other Poems (1858), The Earthly Paradise (1868–1870), A Dream of John Ball (1888), the utopian News from Nowhere (1890), and the fantasy romance The Well at the World's End (1896). He was an important figure in the emergence of socialism in Britain, founding the Socialist League in 1884, but breaking with that organization over goals and methods by the end of the decade. He devoted much of the rest of his life to the Kelmscott Press, which he founded in 1891. Kelmscott was devoted to the publishing of limited-edition, illuminated-style print books. The 1896 Kelmscott edition of the Works of Geoffrey Chaucer is considered a masterpiece of book design.

Thanks for the reminder. Had spotted but forgot again of course.
(Last time I was there they were singing across the room rather than from the end which is bad acoustics and gives the singer an echo. I'd recommend singing from the far end if you can).

Dick's a cracking good entertainer, not to be missed so all in the Aycliffe area get along to the North Briton next Monday and give him the support he deserves. I'll be there for sure, see you again Dick.

Guest Breezy, people perform because they want to be heard, and to entertain, and of course, they want an audience. Absolutely nothing wrong with blatant publicity. If you don't promote yourself, and the venue you are performing at, then you should not be performing at all!

Keep the blatant publicity going Dick.
