Stony Tracks with Derek Gibbons
Venue: York House Centre, London Road, Stony Stratford
Date: 14 Nov 2018
Time: 20:00 to - 21:30
The turn-tables are turned for this first anniversary special, celebrating Derek Gibbons’ highly successful and popular series. For this one, Derek will be the “castaway”, chatting to Ken Daniels, who was the very first guest last November.
Derek grew up on several farms, and when he left school completed a 5 year apprenticeship at Wolverton Works as a Fitter & Turner, then spent the next 33 years at McCorquodales, before ending his working life as a Driving Instructor.
He’s lived in Stony since 1976 and has been involved in most of the events that take place in the town.
A founder member of Stony Stratford Morris, and Stony Stratford Mummers, he is currently on the committee of Stony Stratford in Bloom, Stony Open Gardens, a Trustee of York House, and a volunteer for various organisations in MK.
Tickets £5.00 from York House or Odells – advance booking essential as these shows sell out quickly.
Stony Tracks is a fundraising event for York House held on the second Wednesday of each month.
At each show, Derek Gibbons will be in conversation with a local resident about their life, and playing some of their favourite music. (sound familiar?).
A small bar will open by 7.30pm for the purchase of beers, wines, and soft drinks. Bar proceeds also go to York House.

BACKGROUND AND HISTORY
The big difference with the radio show, is not only that it’s in front of an audience, but it will feature photos of the guests life on a big screen.
Each shows lasts approximately and hour, and after a short interval, the floor is thrown open to the audience to ask their own questions.
The first event raised a total of over £300 which will go towards York House’s many community and arts events.
