Cool!!!!

Like the merigoround. Found out a couple of years ago that my dad did his apprenteship a Orton and Spooner in Burton On Trent . http://fairground-heritage.org.uk/learni......spooner/

Funny how you don't realise your parents are cool (well have a cool background) until you are well past your teens!

"Orton and Spooner" ... I'm glad I followed your link, I was vainly trying to figure out the meaning thinking that it was Cockney rhyming slang. "The Bobbies nabbed 'im right in the middle of lunch; 'e was always goin' for a nice bucket of Kentucky Fried Orton-and-spooner 'e was."

It should have read at rather than a ..... Not sure if that would have made it clearer. Unless you have heard of them you're not likely to know of them.

Actually, Dave Matkin, the page you linked to made me think (a few months back) that Orton and Spooner had made the mysterious Norman's Ghost showfront that I asked about HERE

Less than 2% of reported UFO's turn out to be actual interplanetary vehicles.

The late Ralph Fountain had a truck with a (hand operated) "MGR" on it. The operator had to turn it by hand! If they didn't want to book his magic show, he would sell the client his MGR. Ralph's wife would operate it!

We did quite well " giving" a magic show away.....If the festival didn't have any money available they were quite willing to let us set up our cotton candy stand in exchange for the FREE show.....Have a friend still doing this with his puppet show....must still work , he's been doing it for 12 years...

I had a pseudo-medieval Hell's Mouth stage once, at a Renn Fair. It was wonderful!
