GUEST,Hootenanny The Waterman's Arms - Isle of Dogs (18) RE: The Waterman's Arms - Isle of Dogs 23 Jan 20


I didn't realize that there were a few fellow east enders here on mudcat. When I belonged the SPY (South Poplar Youth Club) in Poplar High Street we used to drink across the road in The Resolute where one of the priests from All Saints Father Apps always in his cassock used to come in and play piano. I remember one of the local housewives lustily singing "Arseholes are Cheap Today" to the tune of "Ta Ra Ra Boom De Ay".
I just took a quick look through my copy of Dan's book "Limehouse Days"
One of the people that he features who might be of some interest to one or two Mudcat contributors is Joan Littlewood.

Guest SB. Re "The Risng Sun" in Mile End Road, are you confusing this with The Rising Sun on the corner or Globe Road and Roman Road? Globe road runs from Mile End to Bethnal Green and there were regular weekly TV shows from there with similar acts to those you mention. Peters and Lee a popular duo started there
