This Show was created by the Octopus Club (details of the Club are set out below) with input from staff at Great Georges (the Blackie).  This was very early in the life of the Blackie (in those days we were known as Great Georges after the name of the former church and our registered charitable name 'The Great Georges Community Arts Project'); we had few staff  but a number of regular volunteers and attendees.  Events in those days were by invitation rather than public advertising.

Have no idea what this event was. We simply have a record that it happened.  It was a private event - which meant by invitation only - and cost the princely sum of  £3.00.   Given the title we suspect that it was an event which included participants painting an area, having tea and coffee and listening to the group Manic Depression.

3-10pm Kevin Rowan's & Nicky Dewison's Party (for Blackie regulars aged 12 and under). We know that 'The Party' included a puppet theatre, a Clown who did magic and comedy, a disco and of course food and a birthday cake.  What is less clear is the actual running order of events, so below is an educated guess. 3pm - 4.30pm Cartoon Film show, Puppet Theatre and Comedy/Magic.
