At "The Bell Inn"  Ticehurst, East Sussex,
Sunday 15th April 2018

Special Guest Appearances by;

The world-famous & lovely all-round fellow,
Mr Jeffrey Holland
and the even more lovely
Miss Jane Milligan, daughter of the man himself.

Our Grand Celebration of Spike's 100th is set for Sunday 15th April.

It will take place at The Bell Inn pictured above from about 11am with a walk around the village, where Spike once lived .

This is a completely free event sponsored by the owner of The Bell Inn, Mr Richard Upton, along with
his cohort, Mr Kit Smith, (Major, Royal Artillery Ret'd.) raising money for local Charities.

Plans are afoot for poetry readings, long-lost film shows, general mayhem, food and The Grand Finale, a special rendition of "Queen Anne's Rain" by those Sons of Sun--The Sussex Mob--well known for their cardboard & string portable gas cooker on Bournemouth beach for batter-pudding hurling, their phantom head-shaving at Brighton and more recently the 60th Anniversary Goon Show at Grafton's a couple of years ago with our Special Guests joining-in the fun.

There are trains from Charing Cross to Hastings which stop at Stonegate Station, just a short walk from Ticehurst.

For more information contact our web fiend and grand master of the rolls Les Drew on the GSPS email address.

This was us two years ago at our first ever performance in The Bell. L-R = Kit Smith,  Les Drew, Phil Ladd, and John Repsch. On the day we were ably assisted by Adrian Briggs and our good friend, professional Goon Show actor Richard Usher.

Happy 100th Birthday Spike
