About the group A group for theatres, past and present.
Created 10 July 2012
During 1937 to 1939 our father Barrie Brettoner was one of the 'ace' organists who circulated throughout England; playing at various theatres.
Hastings was the last place before returning to Australia with our mother Daphne & my older brothers Robin & Trevor.
I would very much like to be able to make contact with anyone who remembers our father.
