JOHN'S FORTHCOMING EVENTS

THE INFORMATION BELOW WAS UPDATED ON 25TH OCTOBER 2022

AND WAS CORRECT AT THE TIME OF POSTING.

I ALWAYS RECOMMEND THAT YOU CONFIRM BEFOREHAND

THAT ANY EVENT YOU ARE TRAVELLING TO IS DEFINITELY ON!


(Having arrived at theatres, more than once - Freddie Starr, Fleetwood Mac etc - and be told, 'the concert is cancelled').

I am currently in the throes of organising the concert that I have scheduled to

take place at Huntingdon Hall on my 80th birthday (Saturday 9th April 2022),

pandemic problems permitting of course - full details will be published on this website on March 9th, when ticket sales go public.

Full information on what else I am organising during what I am calling my 80th birthday year - will be posted here as soon as possible.

If you would like to receive any advance details call me on my mobile 07780 671442 anytime (well, PM only, I'm not a morning person).

 

Keep safe, keep smiling and keep rocking - John.

LEIGH UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB'S REUNION

The local entrepreneur legend Godfrey John Banner (he prefers to be known as John) is organising a get-together for all the lads who played football for Leigh United and Leigh United Old Boys football clubs.

John, whose main claim to fame is that he has put on more different concerts at The Swan Theatre and Huntingdon Hall in Worcester than any other promoter, was secretary of the Leigh football teams from 1962-1982 (they always played in the Malvern league) inclusive and ran them virtually single-handed.

He told us "...I thought, at the age of 80, it would be a good idea to have a reunion - whilst most of us are still alive, and can still recall the tales to tell..."

The get together is at The Portobello, Bransford Road, St John's Worcester WR2 4EZ on Friday 28th October 2022 commencing at 3pm and going on as long as necessary - there will be food available (chicken in the basket style) at £5 per head.

John has provided us with a complete list of all the players he can think of and appreciates he may have missed one or two plus, regrettably, "...there are more than a few of the named who are, sadly, no longer with us..." was how he concluded.

If you played football for either, or both, of the teams and your name is not listed John would love to hear from you.

Obviously, he would like to hear from you if you are listed, and would like to attend but he hasn't been in touch with you - because he does not have your contact details.

Give him a call on 01684 569285 (landline) or 07780 671442 (mobile) or email him at jbworcs@hotmail.com
