Some other familiar characters were Frank Hovis, Calum Gilhooley, Denzil and Gwynedd, McGlashan,The Nice Family, George and Donald McDiarmid and Bert Bastard etc.
Absolutely stared Gordon Kennedy, Peter Baikie, Morwenna Banks, Jack Docherty, Moray Hunter and John Sparkes.
A few years ago I started a campaign website to get this forgotten gem of a comedy released on DVD in full, my Absolutely fan website was so popular that I was able to prove beyond a doubt that this show should be released and sure enough because of my website the Absolutely box set was released.
Don't take my word for it, read it on their website ! Its true !
Well its been quite a while since we have seen the Stoneybridge town council on television, but in a few weeks time there is a Benefit gig in London that will feature two of Absolutely's Stoneybridge town council members on Saturday 17th November 2012 at Hampstead Town Hall, London.
Brucie and Boaby from Channel 4’s Absolutely will host "The Stoneybridge Ceilidh"
That's Gordon Kennedy and Peter Baikie ! you can also see Pete Baikie perform in the Glenbuck Cherrypickers, see video below.

The main act at this gig are The Glenbuck Cherrypickers (who have backed Glen Campbell, David Bowie, Morrisey, Nitin Sawney and Rolf Harris among others). The Cherrypickers reputation as top-notch entertainers is built on sublime 5 part harmonies, fiery picking and a stage show full of extraordinary musicianship, variety and humour.
Video of them in action:

Hampstead Town Hall, 213 Haverstock Hill, London NW3 4QP
Update : The Northern Line will be partially shut down on Saturday 17th November so there is NO SERVICE north of Euston station! So if you were planning on going via the tube you will have to catch the replacement bus service.
I'm new to this but I've looked into it and the replacement bus service is something that tfl provide when the tube is out of service. You can use your Oyster card just the same (remember to swipe when leaving the bus!) In this particular case, if you were intending to travel from Euston to Belsize Park then you will have to walk outside Euston station to Eversholt Street and wait at Bus Stop A.
Google Street view of Bus Stop A.
Here you will need to catch "Replacement Bus E" towards Hendon Central. The driver will announce Belsize Park, is the stop after Chalk Farm.
Coming back after the gig it looks like you have to catch 2 buses.
Here is a direct link to the tfl journey planner, this will tell you what buses to catch if the tube is shut. Complete with times and maps that work on smartphones.
So go along and support The Glenbuck Cherrypickers, The Whole Shebang and The Stoneybridge Ceilidh.
