May the club moved again after the White Lion closed down (in
spite of following the accountant's advice). Its new home was the Lincoln
Arms, just across the river, where there was a homely upstairs room comfortably
furnished with old bus seats.
The last guest at the White Lion, Mr Bonko, was one of the most disappointing
performers ever to appear at the club and stayed asleep under Sully's chair
for the entire evening. Still, at least he didn't start barking.
A surprise member of the audience in June was Nic Jones, still slowly recovering
from his injuries, who came along to see Martyn Wyndham Read.
