Santa Paws Appeal

Friday 20th December, 2019

Every year Pets at Home run their annual charity Christmas event The Santa Paws Appeal to raise money for Support Adoption for Pets who help animal charities by funding grants, building new rescue centres, funding vet bills and even pet medical equipment for fire stations! Each store also supports their own local charities who get 50% of all the money raised. Scarborough store supports Yorkshire Coast Dog Rescue who help, foster and rehome dogs across the Yorkshire Coast. From November 22nd until Christmas Eve events take place inside the store: tombola, bake sales, games (including our toughest one yet - guess the combination to free Santa from the crate!) Just 50p will provide a rescue pet with a Christmas dinner. Scarborough is aiming to raise £4000 this year! Donations can be made in store at the stalls or added on to your shopping (so card payment is fine!) and they can also be made online. Yorkshire a Coast Dog Rescue are also looking for volunteers to help run the tombolas and bake sales and of course...pets are welcome to join too! even if it’s just an hour or two!

Scarborough Market Hall
St Helen’s Square

Apollo Music and Promotions are very proud to announce the legendary DR FEELGOOD plus supports will be playing the Scarborough Market Hall on Friday 20th December 2019



Canvey Island in Essex, was an unlikely birthplace for Britain's finest R&B band. Its bleak industrial skyline set against the cold waters of the Thames estuary, keeps it from inclusion in most holiday brochures, but in the 1960's it was home to teenage friends Lee Collinson, Chris White and John Sparkes.

The trio shared a strong interest in music, and with like minded friends, formed a skiffle band which would doggedly play outside pubs and clubs in the Canvey area until they were invited in to play a couple of numbers.The band's name would change almost as quickly as their line-up, but the day that White and Collinson went to see Howlin' Wolf at a gig at the King’s Head in Romford was to have a profound effect on them both.Soon after, Collinson started learning to play harmonica.Time passed, and whilst Collinson and Sparkes continued to play together in an outfit called The Wild Bunch (aka

The Pigboy Charlie Band, when Charlie was along playing piano and including Kevin Morris on drums), White went to Drama School and, having changed his name to Chris Fenwick, began to enjoy a number of acting parts in films and notable TV programmes of the day.

The Pigboy Charlie Band continued to suffer line-up instability over the months that followed and, following a chance meeting with an old acquaintance, John "Wilko" Wilkinson, the pair invited him to join the band.

Wilko agreed, but all parties decided that a name change was well overdue, and after a number of suggestions, the name "Dr Feelgood" was agreed upon, after a well-loved Johnny Kidd and the Pirates version of a blues standard.

Whilst the band began to attract a degree of local interest, it was their old friend Chris "Whitey" Fenwick who was to provide the band with their first foreign engagement. Fenwick had made the acquaintance of a Dutch promoter whilst at a wedding in Holland, and, already practiced in the art of role-playing, had passed himself off as a well known English DJ who just happened to know a great little band who were "ready to go".

And, so it was then, that the band, joined by local drummer, John Martin (nicknamed "The Big Figure" for his striking profile) headed for Holland aboard a cheap, but dangerously un-roadworthy, second hand van.

The run of five gigs proved to be the turning point for the band, and whilst on route back to Canvey Island, all agreed that, almost by accident, they had the makings of something, which should be pursued at all costs. Collinson changed his name to Lee Brilleaux, Wilkinson to Wilko Johnson and with Chris "Whitey" Fenwick at the managerial helm, things were about to change... and fast.


After their second trip to Holland, Southend resident, Heinz Burt, the former bassist with 60’s outfit The Tornados, contacted the band.
Heinz had long since reverted to a day job selling advertising space in the local paper, but continued to supplement his income by occasional appearances on the revival circuit. He suggested that the band became his backing group for a few gigs, and, with the chance to play still all too rare for the band's liking, they agreed.
The union was short lived, but culminated in a memorable appearance alongside Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Bo Diddley and MC5 at the Wembley Rock'n'Roll Festival in 1972.

As the band returned to work the local circuit throughout the following year, a change was occurring within the capital's live music scene.

Almost in defiance of the popularity of increasingly larger venues, the Pub Rock scene was starting to gather momentum, hosted by a number of increasingly crowded London pubs.

The band quickly developed a reputation as a no-nonsense, "in yer’face" act, who's gritty "anti-fashion" appearance and stage antics quickly caught the attention of the music press. In an article in the NME, journalist, Charles Shaar Murray, famously likened their act to "Hiroshima in a pint mug"

By 1974, the band's reputation secured them a contract with United Artists, and following tours with Brinsley Schwarz and Hawkwind, the band's first album "Down by the Jetty" was released in January the following year. Throughout early 1975, the band toured with Kokomo and Chilli Willi and the Red Hot Peppers on the Naughty Rhythms Tour, before returning to the studio later in the year to record their second album, "Malpractice" released in October.

A year later, the timely release of "Stupidity" the band's first live album, saw it soar to the No.1 spot after only a week in the album charts. For the time being, at least, Dr Feelgood could do no wrong. Sadly though, oblivious to all but the band, dark clouds were massing on the horizon


Driven by the love of guitar music and fun, Rocketsmith turn up, tune up and go off.

Join us as we light the touch paper without standing back.
