Tony Hadley opens East Anglian Beer Festival


The man who helped me pass my O'Levels in the 1980s opened the 17th East Anglian Beer Festival in Bury St Edmunds today.

I spent all morning singing, "Gold", "True" and "I don't need this pressure on", but when you're off to a beer festival there is indeed no pressure, except of course when the bus is late and you know you don't like beer.

I was off to see none other than Spandau Ballet's Tony Hadley officially cut the ribbon.


Then I stalked him, with my lovely friend Ruby (who's also published her blogpost), while he was interviewed by the local press. Another interview I overheard sounded rather intriguing...something about a TV series coming up.


But not really being into beer, and only being able to cope with one glass of cider, I thought I'd be better off slinking off politely and going for a coffee...

My only regret is that I never asked Tony about his bin.

That was very nice cider though - and it's probably a good job we left when we did - I'm still a bit tiddled.

I'm glad to see your taste improved as you matured-ditch The Bay City Rollers for a bit of real class!

Hi Ruby...this is proof that I am really out of the closet. You are right. We did indeed leave at the right time (21st CM) x
