I have vivid recollection of the West Pier episode of the "Five O'Clock Club" in 1964. I was still at Junior school and the school was invited to select some children to take part in the show. I was one of the lucky ones as was my brother! We were taken to the show in a couch and were treated very well. We did a rehearsal - I was very surprised that we were told when to clap and when to shout! they held up boards saying clap and shout. I suppose it was to create atmosphere or something. Lulu was the star of the show and was singing "SHOUT" unfortunately, I still cannot stand this song today! Lulu was very small and delicate looking - and I thought not at all like when on TV. But of course this is only the opinion of (at the time) an 11 year old. I have looked for years in vain for some footage of this show with Lulu on the West Pier
but to date, have had no luck. I have often discussed this adventure
with friends and family over the years, but alas, no one remembers the "Five O'Clock Club". Happy days!
