  • Many Flying Solo members have loved the guided walks given by our member Barrie Greene during the summer. Now both Barrie and his friend Alan have put together a talk about their memories of their adolescant years and it's a lot of fun

    ------------------------------------------------------------                                                                         ...................FROM SCHOOL BLAZER TO MOHAIR SUITS............................

           Musical memories of growing up in the fifties and sixties

    Growing up in a London in the late 1950s and the “swinging” 60s, was remarkable, although those of us at the time didn’t realise it back then. We were just normal teenagers, suffering from the same angst that adolescents have always done, but we had one advantage, the fabulous music which has lived on through the decades.

     In our talk, ‘From School Blazer to Mohair Suit’ using photos, videos and music, we will regale you with stories of growing up and how music affected us and keep the memories of that special time fresh in our minds By just by hearing a few bars of a song memories flood back like such as, Sunday lunchtimes and Family Favourites, traumas on the dance floor when asking  someone to dance, our first nightclub, our first kiss, our first holiday abroad and so much more.

    So 'Don’t Walk On By 'or 'Runaway' come with us on a personal musical journey and  'Walk back to happiness' to the days when we were just growing up. Join us as we cruise back in time because There is 'always something there to remind us'.


    The talk lasts about two hours including a break, but as we are in a room above one of London's most historic pubs in Fitzrovia we are only just a flight of stairs from a drink and a snack.  There is limited availability, only 35 tickets for sale so those who book first will be successful and the best way to be sure of a ticket is by payment in advance by pay pal. So to reward those who who pay early the cost is only £10 but with cash on the night it will be £15 and then on a first come first served basis.If interested please rsvp as soon as possible as this talk is sure to be a sell out.                     

    For more details contact Barrie at [masked]


    Limited amount of spaces for this talk - so please pay in advance. £15 tickets available on the day - Subject to available space on the night - First come first served
