The Pass

The Special Pass - my personal collection of these from Events I have been involved in is now quite extensive - as you can imagine!

A Chris Farlowe and Louise Minchin selfie!

The man who was Number 1 in the Charts on that day in 1966 with Out Of Time - Chris Farlowe - sang the song live with us. Here I am with one of our gorgeous Presenters, Louise Minchin, and the man himself. An Interval Selfie!
