gig poster and flyer (click to enlarge flyer)





for some of the more "punk/new wave" gigs, on entry to the venue, fans were given slips of paper as below. Bear in mind that everyone cancelled Sham 69 except Friars in January of this year. These little flyers helped ensure that Aylesbury Friars stayed on the straight and narrow and to be able to present the more interesting bands that people wanted.
