This post will only be of interest to people who were at Vineyard Community Church, Bermondsey, London, in 1991. So the rest of you shouldn’t feel embarrassed about leaving now.
We put on a variety show on 21 July 1991. When I was cleaning out some old junk (which I do occasionally do) I found some of the paperwork. So I scanned it, and here it is for those half-dozen people who might care.
The first official confirmation, sent by the producer (who is now my wife):
The provisional programme, together with instructions for the performers.
The front cover of the programme. Back in those days, it was all handwriting and photocopiers: not many people owned a printer, and if they did it was likely a dot-matrix printer.
The order of acts (brought to you once more by the wonder of handwriting. No, not a handwriting font, actual handwriting.)
I’ll just retype the list of “musicians, writers, actors and actresses” for Google’s benefit, in case any of them happen to search for their own name:
- Janet Cheeseman [now Janet Williams]
- Claire Rodgers
- Peter Solomon
- Leslie Watkins
- Chris Sewell
- Phillip Gray
- Peter Sandeman
- Mike Taylor
- Jean-Marc [no surname given, and I don’t remember what it was]
- Ian Cottee
- Alex Swan [now Alex Blacknell]
- Jo Donaldson
- Paul Williams
- Richard Howes
- Matt Gillard
- Kate Morris
- Anna Tun
- Mary Lee
- Paul Norford
- Sue Dentskevich [who drank all the pink champagne at our wedding]
- Sharon Jones
- Vincent Bickers
- Duncan Strong
- Liz Vaughan
- Rachel Potter [now Rachel Gray]
- Katie Maddock [now Katie Poulsen]
- Jane Salmons
- Bob Emery
What an enormous list!
