My paternal Grandfather (who sadly died before I was born) was an Engineer by trade, however it appears he also enjoyed entertaining people and was often involved in Benefit Concerts at theatres.
They look like a smart lot... (Wal's the second man right at the back on the left)
Sometimes he was “Wal Nut” – Comedian, and other times he was W.J. Lewis “Conversationalist and Simultaneous Dancer” – whatever that entailed – and occasionally he was a Magician (with homemade tricks) and also did Panto at Christmas (Ebernazer in Aladdin).
It's another fascinating insight into a grandparent I never knew, and it's great to have some of the original programmes from this time in his life. x
