John Leyton

Hello Everybody,
Welcome to my December and January newsletter.

Let me commence by wishing all of you, your friends and family a very ‘Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year’.
From a personal perspective this year has simply flown by and to say the least has not been without many good memories of meeting so many of you at my Concerts up and down the Country. As I mentioned in my previous newsletter I was taking a trip down memory lane and revisiting for the first time many of the locations that we used for the filming of ‘The Great Escape’. I would like to thank all those that I met and made me feel most welcome during my visit. We shot a lot of film and took many photographs, some of which we plan to use on the website at some future stage.

December sees The Flames and myself in Concert on Saturday 4th with Mike Berry and The Outlaws at Blackfriars Arts Centre, Boston, Lincs. On Saturday 11th December with Mike, Jet Harris, Clem Cattini, Russ Sainty , Chas McDevitt and our host David Hamilton at The Amersham Rock ‘n’ Roll Club for The Craig Douglas Benefit Concert. Craig has confirmed that he will be with us and has agreed for a last time to take the stage to perform ‘Only Sixteen’. This really should be a great evening, very few tickets are now available. During the evening we will also be holding an auction. Some very interesting items will be auctioned, So please bring your ‘cash’ or cheque book if you wish to bid for any of the items. A full list of the auction items is appended to this newsletter. The Flames and myself complete this year’s bookings with the New Years Eve concert at The King Stanley Royal British Legion Club in Kings Stanley, Gloucestershire.

CD News.
Broon's FamilyReleased in time for the Christmas rush is a 5 CD box
set titled ‘The Broons Family Album’ (A Braw Collection O’ The Broons  Favourite Tunes), containing ‘Johnny Remember Me.’ The Broons are a well known cartoon family that I’m sure are very well remembered by the many of you who were either born or currently reside North of the Border.

Always yours.
