Show Notes

The first time the band played in this market town in Lincolnshire. The second show Rick Allen played with Def Leppard after joining the band on 27th November 1978. The band line-up was: Joe Elliott, Rick Savage, Steve Clark, Pete Willis and Rick Allen. The setlist included a couple of Thin Lizzy covers.

The show was a Christmas End Of Term Dance for the nearby Grantham College headlined by The Next Band featuring drummer Frank Noon. Frank played on The Def Leppard E.P. and almost joined the band but opted to stay with his own. Lep supported them and the event also featured a disco. Thanks to Lee Gauntlett (show info) and John Medd (poster photo)
