TIVOLI Boot Boys are set for a double reunion this year, recreating the 60s and 70s skinhead scene—without the violence.
There will even be a children’s do this year, as Rotherham’s orginal skinhead gang aim to beat the £1,300 raised for charity when they marked 40 years in 2009.
Organiser Jack Parry, part of the original crew from 1969, said: “We hoping for more of the same because last year was magic, with not an ounce of trouble barring one small incident.
“We’ve spread it over two days this year, we’ve got a raffle, the band is and a local butcher from Rotherham will be putting on a huge spread.”
North Anston’s Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice will again benefit from the proceeds.
Jack (57), of Meadowbank Road, is confident that the gang can surpass last year’s total, and perhaps even double the amount raised.
The children’s event takes place at the Effingham Arms in Rotherham town centre from 2pm on Friday, April 30. The first main party follows at 7pm.
On the Saturday, the event moves to the Dickens Bar, again starting at 7pm.
Tickets, priced at £5, cover both days and are available by calling 01709 324121.
