Hideout reunion a big convivial success

It was one of those occasions where a lot of the past comes back to haunt you, or entertain you, or both.

The first Hideout Reunion, held in Fallons, brought together a lot of 'heads' who hadn't seen each other for years, even decades.

It was organised by Ger Peacocke, now the first Grand Master of the Ancient Order of Hideout Locker Loungers and Head Room Hunters.

In the course of the evening, which felt extraordinarily like the old Hideout atmosphere of the 50s/60s/70s/80s and 90s, many stories were recalled, embellished and retold. David Byrne called a roll of many of those former patrons of The Hideout who have passed on to that Great Locker Lounge in the Sky.

MC and Town Crier for the evening was Vivian Clarke. All the pictures are here.
