  Venue Reviews & Notes  

  The main building in the photo was the Dog and Duck Pub at the time of the Flag disco, the little annex to the left hand side as you look at it was The Flag venue where Gary played. This is now a Ladbroke's bookies. I know as A) I drove past it just 2 days ago and B) I helped Frank (Frankie) Drake and the late great Peter Gilbert organise the various Numan and Numan related bashes there.  
  It was connected to the pub in so much as it shared an adjoining wall. I never had any dealings with the pub itself, but assume it was the same owner/licencee. The Flag indeed had its own entrance immediately below what you see as the red Ladbrokes sign (you didn't enter through the pub. On going through the door the very small stage was to the left and the bar on the far side to the right.  
  The Flag gave rise to Peter Gilbert & Frank Drake's Flag Promotions which will be familiar to older Numan fans and also produced the excellent 'In The City' magazine.  
  The stage was a permanent structure, complete with wooden pannelling and sides. The PA system used was Garys old equipment which Pete & Frank obtained a year earlier.  
  There were 2 rehearsals, 1 the day before and 1 on the day of the gig, both starting at 10am and finishing around 5pm. These were in private attended by Gary, the band, Pete and Frank along with the sound engineer Roger Millington.  
  Rrussell Bell played guitar for most of the gig with bass on Down In The Park.  
  The public house has been known by a few names over the years including The Hop Bines, then the Chequred Flag, it was called the Dog and Duck at the time of the gig. It went on to be called Bootsy Brogans, then a restaurant called Desi Dons before becoming Tesco Express Supermarket as in the main picture.
