A "grown up" night out with my parents

21 October 1978 - 19:30

Tom Paxton

Jane Bond-Webster

Fan memory

My mum and I loved Tom Paxton and my dad humoured us by coming along, doing the driving and snoozing through some of the performance..... He was a terrible snorer and as a nasty teenager, I was petrified he would do it that evening.....

He didn't, and my mum and I had a marvellous time. At 13, wearing gold sandals with a heel, I felt the epitome of sophistication as I entered the hallowed hall, even with my parents in tow.
