John French on stilts

Hi there from deepest Suffolk, always loved the fairs and I helped serve at nearly all the beer tents over the years, also took part in the odd bit of performance on stilts, (drinking beer through a pipe while a punter was sat blindfolded on a chair, only to wonder where the pint of beer he was balancing on his head had emptied to!) anyway, great site you are putting together, keep those memories and spirits alive, where is Albion now when we need them more than ever!!
