Past Gothique seasons 30 to 39

 

 

Gothique programmes 1995 – 2004

 

Compiled by Dave Simpson

 

The society has not maintained an ‘official’ record of everything that has been shown over the years. However, from the programme booklets, Robin’s recollections, information from long-standing member Alan Kibble and my own notes (I’ve been a member since Season 6 [1971-72]) I’ve been able to reconstruct most of the programmes. However, there are still a few gaps. These are shown in red I would be very grateful to hear from anyone who can help with any of them.

 

I can be contacted at david.simpson399@btinternet.com or see me on the front row at the meetings!
