During the last day of term, i.e., Thursday 16th July 2015, they had an end of term disco where I was the DJ. Imagine my surprise on the gig, when a television camera crew turned up! The kids loved it!

Television is not new to me. The most publicised was on was Noel Edmond’s “Multi-coloured Swap Shop”, BBC 1, 1981. That was a live broadcast at Cardiff Castle, with presenters Maggie Philbin and Keith Chegwin.
