An enjoyable read. Thanks for posting. I had to miss the Anniversary (and patch) so particularly worth pondering. Never knew people were climbing in through the roof. Was unaware that journalists were present. Author ovelooked the real third section of the Casino, the back bar record room. The article is as good a summary of how it actually was in the mid Seventies, very accurate and well expressed.

Agreed. Nicely observed and written. Cracking up was memorable on the night, just like Goodbye nothin to say was the year before at the first anniversary. Thanks for the memories.

 fascinating display of the noisome infighting, bitchiness and backbiting that the individuals who consider themselves to be the controllers or guides of "the Northern Scene" love to indulge in. 

Nowts changed there then lol

I remember reading this article all those years ago,

and wanted to say I was robbed in the Final of the dancing competition.☺️
saying that coming 3rd at the young age of 15 wasn’t a bad result,
