A massive thanks to my colleague Buddae Johnson for letting me fill his shoes for this great night by the seaside.
When I agreed to cover the show, I wasn’t 100% sure how far away it was, just past London i thought, cant be that far and I’ve never been to Margate before, so great opportunity to visit a new place and get paid to do 😉 OMG how long was the drive…nearly 4hrs later i got to the venue right on the sea front and wow what a great venue, stepped deep in British entertainment history, every household name since the last world war had played the venue, including personal heroes Bob Monkhouse, Morcombe & Wise and the Two Ronnies, they even had posters from the vintage wrestling and boxing shows, so it was a great privilege to say i’ve performed at the same venue as these greats.
A large crowd came out to support the local club and its fighters, with several people coming down from London.
