Katy Carr and the Aviators would like to thank :

Will @ Cocos Lovers and The Astor Community Theatre, Stanhope Road, Deal, Kent,  for a lovely gig on 19th May, and for inviting me back to perform on 21st May- I loved the people in Deal and all the wonderful stories i heard from playing my songs and screening Kazik and the Kommander’s Car. I was especially moved to hear about a Polish war veteran and his movements in WW2 Poland from his two handsome half Polish half Irish grandsons. Big thanks to Sophie Cammack @ Continental Drifts for hosting our gig at Rich Mix and to The Aviators for playing a great gig and to Felix and Christina Hilts at Northants NRTF for planning and promoting our gig at  Hannington Village Hall, School Lane, Hannington, Northants.
