Huge thanks to all who came on Friday and who treated me so kindly.  There were quite a few first-timers, it seemed, or at least several who claimed not to have seen me for several decades.   It was another sell-out (to the extra extent that Mr W and I didn't even have a 'dressing-room' seat by the curtained-off sink in the corner this time), so fingers crossed there'll be another booking before too long.
 
Simon Wallace accompanied me on everything, and I added a bit of perfunctory guitar except as indicated ---

Thrilled to read about the latest gig. Sounds like a perfect treat for all present. And how good to see Pete in fine fettle, with those fingers flitting nimbly over the strings (thanks amark for giving us a taste of the evening, and welcome to the club).

Thank you Sally, and in another thread 'amarkmcq' -- I'm always very pleased to see first postings from recent members. The Forum is nothing like as active as it once was, and most new MVs now seem content to lurk in the background. Or perhaps they join, read a few messages and then forget about us. But it's great to hear an appreciative word from someone new.
 
It's especially good that you (Sally) were finally able to get to one of Pete's gigs, so long after buying his first album, and that you (Mark) shared with us your excellent videos of the event -- much appreciated. Seems from Pete's comments that there were quite a few 'first-timers' there, as well as some of the regulars.
 
Nothing definite lined up for the gigs diary at present, I'm afraid, though with Pete and Simon once again having sold out the Pheasantry, we expect (well, hope) they'll be back there again before too long. Pete tells me he's working on some new song ideas, so that should be an extra incentive to catch his next appearance.
 
It's been a while since any MV members organised an event for Pete. It needn't be a world tour -- take a look in the archives: we've seen recitals and members' gatherings in various parts of the country, in Scotland, and a couple of times even in Paris, set up by MVs. And most cities have either an arts or literary festival, or a jazz, folk or acoustic music venue, a Students' Union, library, a small concert hall on the revivals circuit or just the back room of a pub that books off-mainstream entertainments -- all places that will have their own networks to promote their events to the wider public. If you know the people involved with such a place, give them a call, ask if they've heard of the PA/CJ collaboration, see if they're interested in putting on an Atkin evening. If you believe they can make it work and attract the audience, then liaise with Pete, see if he's OK with the location and organisers, proposed date(s) and such, before putting them in touch.  
 
Or how about a church hall, or, hey, a barn a marquee in your own back yard -- that's how we started. You'll have to organise and promote it yourself in that case, but it has been done, several times. If you have (or are) a strong contender for a booking, you can contact Pete through this forum -- click the 'Instant Message' (more accurately a personal message) link, in any of his posts. Or use the 'Bookings' email address in the 'Gigs' section of the Website.
 
Whatever comes along, and whenever, it'll be announced first here and on the Website. And the rest of you newcomers: tell us what you think!

And I've just been reminded -- it was 20 years ago this month!

Hard to believe that it's been 20 years since Pete reappeared out of a virtual nowhere.
This anniversary deserves to be celebrated somewhere, as you suggest Steve.
And until then, a huge thank you to you and Carole for getting this unique start-up on the road and keeping it up over two decades.
