    I am so sorry but it was so long ago that I cant even remember the photographers name that I worked for.

    It must have been nearly 40 years ago.

    I didnt work there long, a few months at most but lovely memories all the same.

    Ooh, pardon, I've not been well.....



    How the hell could anybody forget a name like that?

    Didn't Sid James play him in a Carry On film......

    Yes well quite.

    It was during a time in my life when I was meeting quite a few people.

    We can leave it there.

    I visited Jollees a number of times, to see some of the above artists. In fact Cannon and Ball was one of the funniest shows that I ever saw!! I was literally falling off my seat laughing at the jokes etc.. I have recently found some memorabilia of the times I spent there, but I was hoping there might be some way of finding out who featured there and dates when they appeared, just to complete some outstanding information for my collection.
    Does anyone know if and where I might find out some details? Is there an archive of who appeared and when?
    Brian.

    When I've tried to do that sort of thing, I've found it quite effective to just Google "artist venue" - about half the time it will come up with info from somewhere.

    With a place like Jollees it might be worth trying a few variations and misspellings, too - in fact, you can try that for some artists, also.

    Often, acts would play at such venues regularly, so it can be difficult to be sure which date it really was..
