Thanks for posting the smudges @gene - a shame I wasn't able to get a ticket for this, will keep an eye out for another event.
Out of interest what was was the format of the event, was any clip footage shared or was it a general Q&A with a compare of the actors reminiscing of the good old days?
I believe there was a showing of Sweeney! earlier in the afternoon followed by the guests arriving. After introductions a general chat session made up the first half. There was an interval for the guests during which a montage of clips featuring the actors was shown. The second half comprised of more chat followed by the Q&A and the meet and greet signing sesh.
I really enjoyed this second Sweeney Reunion event and it was as good as the first one back in July 2019, with all the guests on good form once again. I was pleased that Norman Eshley was well enough too attend this time around. It was also great to see a good turnout of forum members for this event, and particularly good to see Gene there too.
Some great smudges from Mr Hunt there as well
The 'permissive society' doesn't exist. I know, I've looked for it - Rupert Rigsby
I would have liked to attend this. I wonder if Dawn and Norman remember working together on "Out", if I remember correctly they shared a scene where Brian Croucher was beaten up by Norman.
Glad that so many of the squad were in attendance
Yes Steve Norman did chat about that scene as the debt collector in Out.
Brilliant bit of acting that as Chris Cottle (Brian Croucher) looks believably drunk in that scene and and Turpitt (Eshley) is menacingly understated as the almost geeky, bespeckled debt collector who flick's a switch, beats up and get's the drop on Cottle pretty easily.
Norman also mentioned how he got into character as Hargreaves using one trait of yawning - a reaction of someone who is nervous, before the squad go to arrest Cook and Ames in the campsite, noticing that now it works brilliantly in the lead up to that sequence.
On the whole it was a good event to attend and all of the guests gave some good insights into the Sweeney/other work over the years too. aA bit like Del earlier on gutted couldn't have made the first one with George Sweeney too.
