We Come Along On Saturday Morning - a Memory of Worcester.
Do you remember the Gaumont Junior Club? For a few pennies on a Saturday morning, hundreds of local kids watched a cartoon, a newsreel, an information picture and a main feature...PLUS, there was community singing with John Bee on the mighty Wurlitzer organ. I remember that during the war, we all stood while Mr Bee played the national anthems of the countries that had been overrun by the Germans. There were often some children that had been rescued from those countries in the audience at the Gaumont.
Afterwards, if we'd seen anything with horses in it, all the small boys galloped through the town, smacking themselves on the backside to stimulate even more speed. A decent musketeer cape might be made by doing up the top button of your mac and wearing it backwards. Do please tell me you remember. "We come along on Saturday morning, greeting everybody with a smile...." All together!
