Ok, resurrecting this thread for a couple of reasons:
First in reference to some of the confusion above about the date of the very last all-nighter being on Friday 4th Dec or Sat 5th Dec. Well I have just found these old adverts (both from Echoes end of Oct and start of Nov 81) I've kept from back then, both of which state the date is set for Friday 5th December, thing is if you look up a calendar for 1981 the 4th Dec was a Friday and the 5th was a Sat (the November dates are correct). So maybe that's where the confusion comes, the adverts were wrong concerning the Friday 5th date?
The main reason I've posted here is that looking at this old stuff I got to thinking does anybody actually have tickets for the Tommy Hunt Oct 2nd 81 "last all-nighter" or the above mentioned very last one ever Dec 4th or 5th all nighter. The reason I ask is I have my tickets for the Fri 4th Sept (last oldies all-nighter) and the Sat Sept 19th (End of an Era - supposed last one) but no tickets for the Tommy Hunt Oct 2nd or Dec 4/5th - both of which I went to and I can't think why I wouldn't have kept them as I'm a hoarder of that sort of stuff and also like a sad git I've an SAE (self addressed envelope, for the youngsters) dated 29th Sept and postmarked Bury, Bolton, Wigan which I've marked (back then) as containing my tickets (yea sad I know) which I'm assuming for the Oct 2nd Tommy Hunt date. Also I always seem to see the End of an Era Sept 19th ticket used in books and never a later one. If someone's got them can they put up scans please.
