Ricky-Tick Gig Lists

The Ricky-Tick Clubs of Windsor and Guildford formed a very large part of my teenage years and about 40 years ago I re-discovered all my old Ricky Tick cards advertising which groups and bands were performing in the next few weeks. From these I started to put together a list of who appeared when and at which club. Luckily, a good friend had kept a record of all those gigs we had attended which filled in a lot of gaps and the lists started to grow with information being gleaned from old music papers, books, magazine articles and others’ memories.

With the introduction of the internet, many more sources were available and additional dates were gathered from various sites with both bands and fans freely offering vast amounts of information to add to my quest.

In 2019, soon after the publication of John Mansfield’s biography ‘As You Were’, I was put in touch with Martin Fuggles who kindly let me have a copy of the ‘Holy Grail’ of Ricky-Tick devotees – a spreadsheet listing all the gigs that John & Colin Mansfield and Martin could remember. There were a few errors and a lot of gigs that I had details of that weren’t included, but Martin & I have spent the last year (albeit in ‘lockdown’) trying to put together the definitive lists.

If you or anyone you know has any additions or corrections, please let us know using the ‘feedback’ form at the end of the listings. Likewise if you have copies of posters, flyers, cards or adverts that we can add to the site, we would love to see them.
