1987

Somehow the whole of the Oyster Band including the drummer performed in the bay window which passed for a stage at the White Hart - Alan Prosser had to stand sideways to play - and over 100 people crammed into the room to see them. At the end of August the pub closed without warning (the second pub to go under while the folk club was in residence - would any pub have us again?) and at four days notice another venue was set up - this time at the Spalding Rugby Club. This wasn't suitable for the singaround which moved to the Pied Calf in the Sheepmarket. On December 19 a fund-raising ceilidh with the Old Parrot Band helped keep the show on the road for another year.
