It’s been a very sad beginning to the week

It’s been a very sad beginning to the week. Sunday saw the passing of a local promoter, pub landlord and chef Christian Thornton from Widnes’s Hammer and Pincers. I’ve played five shows for Christian over the past four years. The pub was always welcoming, and the meat-heavy menu was impressive and he was a keen hog roaster. He was a wonderful landlord, being a mixture of a host and comedian and a thinker. He always spoke his mind, never following the herd in opinions. He will be greatly missed for his excellent business sense humour and generosity to charitable causes, particularly prevention of suicide of young men. A gofundme has been set up

I am playing the Duke’s Knickers in Scarborough on Friday. The following weekend I am playing the Live Bar in Warrington on Friday the 24th and Peterhead Snooker Hall on Saturday the 25th
