Saved !

So the Royal Vauxhall Tavern has been bought by Jason, the current manager and according to a (rather unreliable) source from Out, a bloke called Paul. All for a mere £1,085,000. So hopefully we can all sleep safe in our beds knowing that Duckie will continue for the forseeable future at least. Admittedly I haven't heard any formal announcements saying yea or nay, but I think it's a fair assumption that it makes good business sense to continue with a night which has been a nice little earner, packing the punters in every Saturday for nearly 10 years.

And I'm also glad that it means that my last ever Duckie act won't be last Saturday's entertainment, known as The Town Bikes. A performance art duo from Melbourne, they seemed to know what they were doing, and were obviously no strangers to performing for an audience, yet they made little impression on me. Oh well, that's the way it goes with Duckie acts, you win some, you lose some. Bring back Earl Okum !
