Pushing Out the Boat retrospective in the Blue Lamp – Sun 4 Sept

At a great evening’s entertainment in the atmospheric ambience of the Blue Lamp, an audience of over 80 were entertained by POTB writers reading stories and poems from the magazine’s 13 volumes. Two superb guests, poet Wayne Price and author Shane Strachan also read from their own works. Compere Ian Crockatt set a perfect tone for the event, while jazz musicians Rainer Goldbeck and Hamish Mackensie charmed the audience during the intervals. The event raised almost £600 to help fund future editions of the magazine and POTB are deeply indebted to Sandy Brown for donating the venue, and to his cheerful and helpful staff.
