remember that out-of-this-world famous one-liner from 20th July 1969, firmly cementing

take a look back at that golden year - the pinnacle of the space race, Woodstock,
Counter Culture, Abbey Road, Concorde, the new 50p, Fashion, Culture, and Politics
to name but a few. The evening will be in two parts: Part One: Harry Sherrard will
be looking at the Apollo 11 mission and Neil Armstrong's first steps on the moon.
Part Two: Following Jenny Lockyer's and Vern Griffiths' brilliant 'Last Flight Out'
play and Preparing for Peace at BTM Talks in 2018, they are presenting their take
on the highlights of 1969. With a mixture of songs, sketches and some good natured
audience participation theirs is an informed but not too formal look at one of the
most momentous years in our history."
