Peter Fairman's Pictures from 2016 January/April

One of the joys of the club is that customers help. Peter Fairman attends most gigs, and discreetly takes flashless photographs. We have used them on our Facebook page, but we thought that it would be good to start a chronicle of pictures for each gig.
