    Hi. I was interested to see that you answered a question earlier about the location of the video for A Winter’s Tale being somewhere in Dorset. Bits of the video look like they could be set on Dartmoor or Exmoor. I present a radio show in Devon and would love to clarify this – so that I could mention it when we play David’s song this Christmas. Many thanks in advance.

    • Content Editor says:

      It was directed by the late John King and the brilliant film maker Simon King, his son, who was known for his nature films. Unfortunately David doesn’t remember where it was shot exactly.

    Hi David,
    Hope you are keeping well. I had to write this, when you do Elf the Musical in Cardiff in December, my nephew Kian Swainston is going to be one of the dancers, i’m so proud of him he is really good & its even better knowing that he is on stage with you David. Good luck with the Musical not that you will need it, it will be a hit. I’ve followed you since 1978, first time at Grand Theatre, Leeds & 45 times since then & enjoyed every show that you have done you are a true entertainer & gentleman.

    Love & best wishes

    Bev xx

    I’m coming along next year after poor health. Watched 2 very different documentries 1 being the hype of Evita before it staged. I saw Evita as part of my history written exam It taught me more in 2 hours than 6+weeks in a term. I can thank Tim for that and the fact he states you were the best ever Che.YOU distant cad yourself.
    I sadly watched the cassidy documentry as he was on my 1st OIALT tour. I simply love your music. The poppy bits but the darker bits you listen to on your headohones

    Hi David Essex where was the winter’s tale video location

  14. Fred Woodrow says:

    Basildon Operatic Society have just been granted the licence to perform the regional amateur premiere of Evita. It an incredible achievement for us and it’s going to be extremely expensive for us to produce this magnificent show. As you can imagine we are absolutely thrilled to have been allowed this privilege. We will be needing to promote this show as much as is at all possible. In short, with David’s highly successful involvement in Evita, we wondered if he could help in any way whatsoever with the promotion or publicity. Our production opens on 22nd May, 2018 at the Towngate Theatre, Basildon, Essex and if there is the remotest chance that David could attend the opening that would be totally amazing, or any performance come to that. If this is not possible perhaps a brief note of encouragement to our cast as this is the biggest thing and by far the most expensive show that this Society has ever put on. I hope this is not too much to ask, so please forgive me if this is so. I look forward to hearing from you in due course. Kind regards.

    • Content Editor says:

      To the cast and crew of Balsildon Operatic Society,
      Every good wish for your production of Evita – go well
      David Essex

  15. Jackie says:

    Hi David I have to tell you how grateful I am for what you have done for pat.ive literally left her and for the first time in months she has sobbed with happy tears she said ” that’s it I will be going to see elf and legends tour” and ive surprised her with a booking at potters she is so poorly and sometimes finds it hard to put one foot in front of the other,you are a true legend and a pure gentleman, thank you thank you so much..

  16. Alfie Lawrence says:

    Hi David, it is my partner Janice 60th Birthday on the 8 December, she has always been a huge fan of yours, I was wondering if you would be kind enough to send a signed photo with a birthday message on it to her. Her and her best friend will be coming to see you at Potters in April. Thank you for taking the time to consider this. I look forward ,to hearing from you.
    Kind regards

  25. Judy Norton B.A. says:

    David’s music touched me when I was around 10 years old, his eyes used to melt me. Most of the kids I knew didn’t even know who David Essex was but I didn’t care, I really had the biggest crush on you and my heart used to flutter every time I saw those eyes. Well, I saw those eyes again for the first time today, I haven’t really looked into your career or what you have been doing for 30 years or so but I just wanted to see what you had been up to and wow you have been a busy man. I found my heart fluttering when I saw your website photo. So its good to know that you still make my heart tingle after 44 years. Thank you for all of your music, congratulations on your OBE and I wish I could attend your concert tour next year but I don’t live in England. Anyway, good luck with it all and best of luck. Where can I get copies of your early albums (the remastered ones). Thanks again for all of your efforts and you have aged really well. You are a very good looking man and I am sure that hundreds of women must tell you that every day. Thanks again. xx

  26. David de Roeck says:

    Hello David, I left a message a few days ago but haven`t received a reply.

  28. Lynsey says:

    My Mum is a (very) big fan of yours and it is approaching her 60th birthday. I woundered if you could possibly share what you where doing or a memory from 1958 as I putting together a gift for her. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    • Content Editor says:

      Hello Lynsey,

  29. Liz says:

    Hi David,
    I’ve been a fan of yours for over 40 years. Seen you many times over the years! Will be seeing you at Brighton Legends. Sadly I’ve never met you to get your autograph It’s my 54th birthday at the end of the month October! It would so make my day if I could have a signed picture of you! It would take pride of place in my house! I will understand if you can’t as I know you are a very busy man!

    Hi David, Great to see you, looking well on Good Morning Britain recently. My Daughter asked last night if I had seen the advert with David Essex in his Christmas cardigan for Elf! I haven’t, as I live out in the sticks, and don’t get London adverts! Anyway, telling Mum the story, she hasn’t seen it yet! And then she says it will all be alright!!! What’s the song?! It’s Gonna Be Alright Mum!!!! Would love to see Elf at Christmas! Let’s hope Santa has got me on his Nice list!!! Love Sally (Essex) x

  33. Janet Hocking says:

  35. Angie says:

    Hi David
    Hope you and your family are well, it’s my birthday today and my husband gave me a great gift to go ahead and buy tickets for elf or legends or both…so after nearly 40 years I will finally get to see you live, and travelling all the way from South Africa (my parents wouldn’t let me come see you at sun city) can’t wait to be on holiday in the UK in Dec and see one of my idols.
    Thanks for the entertainment.

  38. Thank you so much David for your signed card received yesterday it made my Birthday very special :) xxxxxx Cheryl Williams, Nuneaton

  39. Anna says:

    Good afternoon David
    Thank you for your reply. Ha ha wow …you really did go strawberry picking ..
    Bet you were busy eating those big strawberries and your mum told you off… ha ha
    I only just read your reply and sadly my brother died on Sunday so couldn’t say ahhh you were right … How on Earth he knew that I’ll never know …
    He wasn’t a fan of yours he was mostly into Santana I drove from Essex to Peterborough in my fiat convertible with the roof down playing samba pa ti in memory of him . He did like you and always complained that his wife liked you too ha ha ha

  40. Gill says:

    So pleased to hear about the Legends Tour it`ll be 2 years since we saw you last and just cant wait….seems like forever for us , also bringing some new “Paws” fans with us to the local concert who have never seen you live and are so excited – Great to see you on Tv too looking fab and great Radio interview ……! Went mad and booked 6…..sometimes you just have to travel to see the best well worth it….(and will be great to see Suzie again .) Take care love to all… extra hug for Levi xxxx And Thank You ….Rock On and On x

  41. Denise Cave says:

    What a great 6oth birthday week I’ve had. Firstly they reprinted our photograph in the all our yesterdays page of the Coventry Evening Telegraph and then I saw you on ‘This Morning’. You have inspired me to embrace my age and look forward to my NHS pension this month. Thank you my friend xx

  42. Tracey shearing says:

    Thank you for doing all those interviews David, lovely to see you looking so well, you sounded like you were enjoying them too. Much appreciated.
    Best Wishes Trace.xx

  43. Lesley Edgar says:

    A new legends tour (2019) and NO Scottish dates again!

    What is wrong with Scotland?

    Do you know the additional cost of going to Newcastle or further south are
    prohibitive to many!

  44. Katie Gray says:


    My mum has been a fan of David for over 40 years, and i am also ! Her 60th birthday is coming up and i wondered if it would be possible to arrange a birthday card to be sent and signed from David ?

    Thanks in advance !

  45. Julie Harding says:

    Hello I posted a message yesterday about trying to get tickets for the Legends Live tour..Well I managed to get some this morning in Leeds and it is thanks to a fan of David’s who posted a link on fb. David has just the best fans ever and the support and help so many have given to me over the years and still do is exceptional xx

  46. Julie Harding says:

    Just want to let you know that ever since I found out that David was going to be on the Legends Live tour I have been trying to get tickets for it. This has been very difficult because I knew about it but the venues didn t. Or rather it was not on their websites. I spoke to someone on Sunday on the Leeds Direct phone number and he told me it wasn t showing on his screen . Now it has appeared on their website and I spoke to someone earlier who told me that to get presale you had to be registered on the legends live page a week ago. However a week ago this was impossible as it didn t exist. I am going to try and get tickets on Friday but I will be very disappointed if all the front rows are taken. This is not Davids fault but I just thought you should know that his real fans who try and get to see him wherever he goes are not always being given a fair chance.
    Lots of love
    Julie x

  47. Denise Cave says:

    It’s been 37 years to the day that you and I made headlines together on the front page of the Coventry Telegraph. I still have the large black and white photograph in my lounge that you kindly autographed for me. Happy memories indeed!

  48. Anna says:

    Dear David
    Just quick question please …and of course if you are able to answer it ….

    I went back to my roots yesterday from Wickford Essex to Peterborough cambs where I grew up …to spend quality time with my family and sadly my beautiful kind spiritual brother Salvatore who sadly does not have long to live … but in my attempt to entertainer him with one of my over exergerated funny story’s your name popped up I told him I’d stalked you but not intentionally ha ha that put a smile on his face as I was telling him I’d gone to watch war of the worlds couple years ago in London on my own and you passed me we both went to same tube station and I was terrified to look at you in case you thought I was following you and so I moved away to the next carriage and got on there I did laugh because there you were few feet away from me you looked so normal so relaxed as any other commuter I just couldn’t say can I have a picture with you or an autograph it was your private time you’d finished your job for the evening so my brother looked a me and Said ahhh you missed your chance and I replied no I never because I stood right near him that was special anyway and I get to tell the tale it’s a moment in time out of the ordinary for a laymen person and that makes it a special memory he then looked at me and laughs weakly, and said you know what Anna I heared he use to go strawberry picking in wisbeach like you did, when you were young with mum ,so there you go , your doomed, missed him again ha ha ha we did laugh but I was gobsmacked naaaaaah no way I can’t even imagine mr David essex doing that you are pulling my leg you might be dying but your not going quietly are you want to leave me pondering on that one ha ha

    I remember I was about 10/12 going strawberry picking with my mum in wisbeach (it was my only pocket money ,) we would all hurdle in the van very early in the morning then stop at the gypsy camp somewhere about there and pick up a few of the travellers/ Romany gypsy so there we were load of Italian immergrants and Romany gypsy. I made friends with a young Romany gypsy girl of my age she use to say can’t come to your house your not a gypsy ha ha ha and of course I couldn’t go to hers but I so wanted to the camp always looked welcoming and mysterious …. ha ha anyway you might have been there in that same place somewhere some time …
    if it’s true
    How mad would that be you of course weren’t David essex then ha ha ha
    So is it true did you really go strawberry picking in wisbeach ????????????

  49. Lee Jay says:

    Hi I want to try and arrange a pre record radio inter view with David Essex, is there an email address for DE Management please



  50. Angela Smith says:

    is there any chance of David Essex coming to Australia – it’s been a long time between drinks.

  51. Tracey shearing says:

    Hi all, just a quick enquiry, something showed up on my Twitter feed saying #rhithemusical alongside David’s name, it then went on to say David had signed up to play the part of Jonathan. Is this true? And if so what is Rhi The musical? Cos I can’t find any info on it!
    Thanks & best wishes Trace, xx

  52. Michael Weston says:

    Many thanks for signing my 60th Birthday card it means a lot to me

  53. Brian Shearing says:

    I have no idea if David has any concerts planned for next Year & if my Daughter knows,shes not saying anything,probably because of what I told her earlier. After almost 46 years of being driven mad by David’s music,films,books etc, (I had a brief respite when Tracey left home), I’ve now decided I want to experience for myself what all the rumpus is about! So at 78/79 years old,my Daughter has very reluctantly agreed to take me to a concert,so hopefully,fingers crossed David will do something next Year, my curiosity at this stage really is getting the better of me. But by all accounts, its something I should look forward to, so heres hoping.
    Regards to all, Brian

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Brian, there are no plans at the moment, but any news of tours etc will be on here.

      • Brian Shearing says:

        Thanks for your reply, as you can see from my Daughters reply,i put up with a lot! But happy to say, she is going to take me to the Legends concert in April & shes paying for the ticket,what one yet we don’t know but been told to ‘get my finger out & decide’ because she’ll be booking the tickets asap,so by the time April gets here,i’ll be 79 & going to my first ever Rock Concert,never thought it would be to see David Essex though! Wonder if I still have my white suit from the 70’s? No, Tracey would have me committed.
        Regards to all Brian

    • Tracey shearing says:

      OMG Dad!! I didn’t know you knew David had a website,much less knew how to post on here. I said you could come with me, not sit with me, oh no, you can sit at the back, quietly & in disguise!

  54. Jackie says:

    Thank you so much for finding the time to reply.. You will never believe the happiness you have brought me and pat the arguing who had the best posters going to see you for the first time Trust me whatever you was doing we was there that was me and her shouting “i don’t think so” yep you thought it was the crouds no we have very big mouths lol.. Thank you thank you so much..xx

      Hello Sonia, David would be more than happy. So sorry for this very late reply, please leave your address on here, thank you.

  61. Marc Harris says:

    Dear David,

    Hope you are well. As an amateur singer-songwriter-guitarist, I’ve always admired your talent, seen you in concert and loved your songs for many years. I wondered if you would be able to assist me please?

    I have been looking for sheet music for your wonderful song Myfanwy – one of my favourites! I have searched on many websites and sheet music sites but unfortunately I have not had any luck so far.

    I have recently noticed that it was released originally on the Arista Records label (according to the info from the cd single available on amazon), which I understand is part of Sony. I emailed Sony over a week ago but have had no reply. Is there any way it would be possible to find out please if this particular sheet music was ever published?

    I would be grateful for your help and will look forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you.

    All the best,


    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Marc,
      With regard to the song Myfanwy, I don’t think there is sheet music published, the song was a poem by John Betjeman ,set to music by Mike Read, perhaps Mike can help,
      Kind regards,

    Paul McCartney’s new song. Come home to me sounds just like you !!!!

  63. E donaldson says:

    I remember seeing “all the fun of the fair” on a Guide pack holiday in London back in 2010. My guide leader was a fan so we all waited at the stage door and I got a photo with David Essex just to show my mum. She’d been such a huge fan of yours as a teen and wanted to go to the show too but it never came to Leeds. Her adoration has never changed. My mum is terminally ill now and little brings her pleasure. But today for the first time in ages I cried happy tears as i watched my mum try to sing along to “hold me close” with a big smile on her face. I found this website while trying to find some more songs to play her tomorrow and I just wanted to thank you for making her happy all these years. It’s made such a difference to see her smile again.

  64. April barker says:

    “I never knew when, I never knew how I’d see your face again. Yours was just a face I’d seen in a magazine, no chance to meet but oh Wotta treat….. ”
    These are words from one of David’s songs. I think it was called The Boxer(!?)
    But I can’t be certain. I’ve looked everywhere online for clues but no joy. It’s driving me crazy
    Music I’ve had for years was all stolen so no chance to check from my past collection, sadly
    Many thanks

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello April, sorry for the late reply, it was the “Zebra kid”. It’s on the “Hot Love” album.

  66. Frances Melvin says:

    Dear David

    I hope you don’t mind me contacting you but I’m emailing on behalf of my friend and colleague, Sue, who has just undergone a gruelling round of chemotherapy. She is on the mend now but is very tired. She is a super fan of yours and has followed your career throughout the years. Sue and I came to your concert when you were last in Oxford and had a wonderful evening (we both saw you previously a few years before that in Oxford) but Sue has seen you lots more times over the years too.
    I wondered if there was any chance at all of a signed photo to cheer Sue up at this time in her life? I totally appreciate how busy you are and how many requests you must get of this nature.
    In any case, thank you for all the years of music and for the happiness you have given so many people over the years.
    Very best wishes.
    Frances (on behalf of Sue)

    • Essex Admin says:

  69. Anna says:

    Well we waved our bithday banner At the concert, Although got bit fed up after 20 mins arm was aching so put it away. Good news a few nice ladies behind me asked who’s birthday is it , David essex I replied happily , his birthday is tomorrow . so off started something similar to Chinese whisper, I just about heared …

    its his birthday tomorrow etc etc ….

    Ha ha But what was really amazing ….was what happened at the end unfortunately had to leave as you ended your last song avoid the volume of people and cars exiting the park my sister and our friend had to get back to Peterborough and Wisbech as we got mid way to the exit. Heard every one singing you happy birthday I stopped turn back o look and just saw 100 100 of amazing fans both in the tent and outside the sourrounding area ..
    It was incredible and I laughed to myself thinking bet not even the queen has had so many people all in one moment sing happy birthday absolutely wonderful I wonder how that must feel can’t even imagine, most of us at the most will in one life time have about 10/20/50 possibly 100 people in one go sing it …. must admit I always feel slightly embarrassed and uncomfortable when I’m at the receiving end I usually shy away and want to hide ha ha ha ha

    It was a great day and my friend carlamaria who has never seen you live but always been a fan (was visiting from Dubai) loved it and thought you were amazing and so eloquent …so thank you for such a great evening in Southend

    Hello David,
    A few years back when my late husband was working for BBC Essex, he and I met you in your dressing room at the Cliffs Pavilion, Westcliff on Sea Essex. You were great fun and extremely charming and although I am sure you will not remember the occasion when he interviewed you, I still remember you signing a CD for me of which I still cherish. I am hoping to be able to get tickets for Garon’s Park next Sunday and to see late husband was Ric Morgan.
    Kind Regards,

    I have been a fan since “Gonna Make You A Star” but cannot remember the first time I heard it. I was born in 1968, obviously well after you came to fame, but as I was growing up, I remember seeing you in “Silver Dream Racer” and have loved it ever since. Would love to hear from you.

  117. Mark McStea says:


    I’m a freelance UK rock journalist and I’m writing a book on the early 70s glam era. I wondered if you’d be interested in an interview – could be by email or phone – whatever you preferred.

      Thank you for you’re message, unfortunately David’s not doing any interviews at the moment.

  118. Anna says:

    Dear David I just realised your birthday is day after the 70 concert in the park .southend on sea i will be there at the front and I treated my sister Caterina for her 60th so I’m hoping depending on my creative abilitity (not too good which is bad really considering I’m Anglo Italian and should be by blood quiet creative considering that heritage ha ha ) to make a banner with happy birthday to you and wave it like mad hoping you’ll notice it amongst the 1000 of eager faces trying to attract your attention ha ha . But what I really was writing to you here about before I got carried away was if you can and have time during you short appearance at the park concert wish my very special kind if at times irratinging beautiful sister a happy 60th please please and just to be extra cheeky please say hello to me too I’m Anna ….
    Thank you so very much if you can and if not then thank you for reading this slightly mad message and at least thinking about my words Kind regards Anna

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Anna, thank you for your message. I hope you both have a fantastic time, unfortunately David doesn’t do shout outs during concerts as he has so many requests. He’d be more than happy to send a signed photo for your sister if you can leave an address on here, it won’t be published.

  124. Jan Simpson says:

    I know this is really cheeky but can I request for myself a Birtday Card from David for my 65th Birthday on the 28th of this month (June). It would make my Birthday perfect and soooooo Special ???? I have followed David for more years than I can’t remember and seen him more timescale than I can remember. 3 years ago I got to have my photo taken with him after War of the Worlds and 2 year’s shows she lucky to have a few more taken when I went to his Book Signing in Reading. When’s he looked up st me and said ‘I know your face’ I nearly landed by his feet under the table, my knees trembled so much. Thank you so much and hope my 65th wish can be made come true. Love to David, Susan and all his gang from Jan xx

    Hi David’s team, my mum Helen is a super fan of David and has been listening to his songs from when she was a teenager and has been to so many of his concerts. It is her 50th Birthday in July and I am wondering if it would be possible to get a signed photo of David. I am her daughter and I know this would really make her day, if it’s possible to get a signed photo I plan to frame it alongside the vinyl of Gonna Make You a Star (her favourite David Essex song). I really hope you can help me with this special birthday surprise and thank you David for making my mum so happy through your music! Best wishes Katie

    Hi David,
    We share a birthday!
    Just to let you know, that we are having a jam at our caravan park near Whitby to celebrate my (our) birthday , with a barbeque and a few drinks, would be lovely to see you there if you are available to have a chilled afternoon with a bit of a sing along. No pressure! But would be amazing if you could! Saw you in Sheffield last year, I was the one with the album thrust under your nose that I got signed by you.
    Be there if you can, you’d love it!!
    Best wishes

    I feel like Silver Dream Racer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  128. Sheila says:

    Hi David, I am not sure if this message will get to you but just wanted to say thank you as my daughter met you on Sunday at my grandsons football match. I know you must get sick of people asking for photographs but she knew how much it would mean to me so thanks for agreeing to have a picture taken with her it really made my day.
    I have seen you many time the first being when I was young and you were playing in Liverpool and the Real Thing were your supporting act. I came to see you in September at Butlins and again the Real Thing also happened to be playing, sadly Eddie has now passed away and this only makes you realise how we should grasp and cherish every day. I love everything about the seventies and the music from that time. I only hope you and all the other musicians from that time, who still perform know how much it means to people like me and that your music has helped me get through many a sad or dark time. So Thank you again because what might seem a little thing like having your photo taken is actually the world to someone like me. Also I hope everything works out well for lady and her sister who wrote in the last comment Love Sheila xxx

  134. Patricia O'Shea says:

    I was shocked when I realized David Essex was you!!! lol! I lived in Manor Rd. buildings from about 1953 or 54 to about 1961. I remember when I was about 10 and my brother Robert 11 or 12 and you about 13 all digging giant holes and trying to dig tunnels over “the mems” (Memorial Grounds) and you always brought all the equipment; shovels, torch etc and you told us we were cousins. Ginny Cook was my nans sister (Eliza O’Shea) maiden name Holland. We moved to Canada in 1966 with our parents so didn’t know you as David Essex. I only found out recently that David Essex is a second cousin (or is it cousin once removed?) It’s funny when I first saw you doing “Rock On” on TV while holidaying in England I thought you looked familiar! no idea at that time you were David Cook:) Do you have any memories of these times? I’m pretty sure you were living with Ginny Cook at the time for a while. All the best, rock on! Pat

  135. Cazz says:

    Just a quick question

    Lately, I’ve been buying my favorite songs from the 60’s and 70’s. Luckily, I found your song, bought it, and looked you up. Apparently, living in the US has prevented me from seeing so much of your work. …ah, perhaps I will get a chance. Best, Kathryn

  138. Chryssi Stout-Yonkins says:

    Hello! I have a simple question…I recently sent David an email to the address on this site. Will he actually get to read it? I would be completely thrilled! Thanks so much for your time.

    Hi David
    May I ask, are you actually appearing in person on the 22/7/18 2pm at Garon park Southend . I actually overheard two ladies in Waitrose Billericay Essex talking about it near the veggi isle ha ha I didn’t want to appear rude eavesdropping on there conversation although i definetley was ha ha so I moved away pretending I wasn’t and may have mis heared that it could be a tribute to you and not you in the flesh
    I live in wickford so that would be great for me as practically on my door step .However I can’t see anywhere stating that you are . So I’m totally confused (not that it takes a lot to confuse me at the best of times) please can you clarify or confirm yay o nay to the above date . I would be very happy to know rush to buy tickets spread the word and stop scanning the internet in frustration trying to source info and tickets

    Thanking you and Essex admin in advance for any replies …. have a happy sunny Sunday


  143. Janette says:

    A big fan since the 70’s when I first saw you on Top of The Pops. Loved all your films and the web site is great.

    Is it true you started out as a drummer In The Everons that later became The China Plates? I was wondering who else was in the band?

    Hi David & all,
    Just a quick note to say Thank you for the time you all took to give us Davids Facebook page. It seems strange without it being there & i’m quite sad that it no longer is but realise how hard work it must have been but,onwards & upwards at least we have Twitter & the Website. Please don’t disappear completely though!
    Appreciative thoughts to each of you.
    Best wishes

    • Angie says:

      I agree with you Tracey it’s weird that it is no longer there, feels like something is missing and it’s a bit of a shame because a lot of David’s fans don’t use Twitter…But I guess there is a good reason for taking it down.

    Hello David Essex I’m hoping to go to India soon volentire to help in an orphanage which belongs to mother meera however I’m suppose to bring something to the table ha ha have no teaching skills what’s so ever so really not sure what I can do apart from cooking cupcakes I would bring them prepackaged ingredients and imagine I’ll be using goats milk hopefully chicken eggs ha ha After all it would be something different a moment of pure fun . Hope I’m not cooking in those clay pots that definetly would be a challenge especially trying to get those cupcakes to rise ummmm. I read some years ago that you spent time in Africa within a similar situation and was wondering what did you do during your stay . And young wise one do you have any suggestions ? Please don’t say teach them songs as I can’t sing for love of money and I honestly think I’m toned deaf ha ha thanking you in advance for any helpful advice

  159. Julie says:

    Hi, been a huge fan for many years & attended most shows both tours & other projects like Mutiny, Robinson Crusoe, All the Fun of the Fair & Boogie Nights so very excited about Elf! But can admin explain to me how the offer of discounted seats would work?- would I need to be an official fan club member & how would payment actually be made? In this day & age of inflated prices & extortionate booking fees I think this offer is a really nice gesture, whether I am personally able to take advantage of it or not!
    Any information would be much appreciated.
    Thank you

  185. David Champion says:

    Crazy notion on Xmas eve but I’m the son of one of your biggest fans… Unfortunately she doesn’t do crowds and has concentrated on raising her family over doing things she used to love like coming to see you perform again… Think my mum saw you last in 1970 something

    My name is David Champion (Guess where my first name comes from??? ) and I am the son of Christine Champion

    Like I mentioned she is amazed by you and on many occasions we’ve both sat up watching the dvd of yourself live at the Albert Hall and cutting back to ‘oh what a circus’ several times (which actually turns out to be quite rare apparantly… No sign of it online anywhere! Not that live performance anyway or any of that gig… So the dvd made me a hero of a son in her eyes)

    I’m not sure exactly where I’m going with this message exactly…
    I just want the perfect gift for my mum this year because she’s an absolute hero

    I’m aware you’re a legend and legends have tight schedules but had to try regardless
    Obviously you’re not gonna pop over for tea and hobnobs but if you could do something like send a message to my email (she’s old school! Internet is the devil) but yea even something as simple as an email saying hi to her would make her year!!!! If not her life!!!

    Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones
    I’ll be bringing her to see you next time you solo perform hopefully

    Thanks for taking the time to read

    Yours hopefully
    David Champion

    • Essex Admin says:

  205. Anna says:

    Morning David

    I noticed somewhere haha can’t remember where but I came across a small trailer for documentary on yourself, however I don’t think it’s actually live to view the completed programme .can you please if you get time either confirm this is not yet live or if it is where can I view it . Really interested to view the path you walked and how it all lead to where you are today .peoples lives are always interesting but especially well know personalities because you look at pictures of anyone really as young children and in that moment they have no idea or the people around them how there lives are going to pan out ……And I suppose for those of us whom have walked a relatively sedentary life it’s always fascinating to watch or read about others much more eventful lives or should I say charmed lives ha

  206. tracey shearing says:

    David, thank you for an amazing concert at Cricket St Thomas last Week. You & the band were on top form. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute. It was worth the epic journey to get there! And if you are ever at a loose end, job wise, the offer of a job still stands you’d make a great Counseller, my lads would love it!

  207. Sharon prosser says:

    Hi,all,could you tell me if there’s going to be a 2018 calendar please. Always have one for Xmas off kids!! Fingers crossed. X

  214. Sue Lis says:

    We had an amazing time at Birmingham & Leeds, then everyone said we were mad to travel 8 hours to get to Brighton. They were totally wrong, even Storm Brian couldn’t deter us. What a night, David, you rocked Brighton Centre, amazing. So looking forward to “next time.”

  215. Mary mullett says:

    Just been to Wembley,I absolutely loved Oh What A Circus.Mary.

  216. Jan Simpson says:

    Hi David, Had my ticket for months but due to a foot injury 5 months ago that refuses to stop hurting, I am off work today and instead of going up to London to see you at Wembley tonight, I am sat with foot up in splint resting it. After a cortisone injection on Monday I was hoping it would be better but sadly I can’t walk without excruciating pain. I am GUTTED to say the least. At least I am lucky that I have met you twice, and had my photo taken with you , the last time in Feb of this year when you came to Reading for your book signing. So sorry I can’t be there tonight. You are a true Gent and have brought me so much fun over all my years of seeing you in concerts and stage shows. Love Jan from Reading xx

  217. Sue (hull) says:

    Hi David and the band,
    As always you were the best by far on Sunday night in Leeds.
    You only had to listen to the crowd to know that.
    Rock on!

  218. Shirley says:

    Hi David, we’ve just home from the concert in my husband’s place of birth, Liverpool. He married a Londoner! Really enjoyed the show but you were the out and out star of it for us. Was really sad not to have the chance to hear more of your songs as we obviously did at the Liverpool Philomonic at the end of you final tour. Adore Only a Winters tale although it makes me cry – even over the sausages if necessary! Didn’t seem right not being able to hear you sing It will be ok, it’s such a beautiful and reassuring song with your special way of singing it. I truly hope to see you again one day. Take care, enjoy life and thank you for years of pure joy listening to your voice and seeing the twinkle in those blue eyes, love Shirley (and the Scouser who took me, Steve!) xx

  219. Karen Day says:

    Hi David

    Had a great time on 14th at Birmingham. All acts were great but you were by far the best.


  220. Julie says:

    Hi David
    You were fabulous in Leeds last night. Hot chocolate, The Osmonds and Suzi Quattro were also good but your session was by far the best. Really hope you will never stop singing with your band. Take care. Love always Julie (Hull) xxx

  246. David White says:

    I have been a big fan of David since 1972.
    I have brought alot of David’s merchandise records, dvd’s,books and tour items etc over the years but their is one thing I would love to own, one of David’s old waist coats , I would have it framed and have it proudly placed on my wall. Could I obtain one of David’s old waist coats, I would gladly pay the cost for any arrangement.
    Many thanks

    Hi dave
    Stumbled on the web site, quiet Saturday for
    Before the season starts!!
    Delayed a trip to Italy, when a mate said you
    Would beattending a charity ball , at the curve
    Leicester, ended up on a table with Lesley
    Joseph, lovely lady, and the performing magician
    Grabbed be as his assistant….
    As soon as I was able tried to find you, Nikolai
    Was on his own, and told me you had
    remembered the football past dave Buckley
    Etc ( how’s he) ? Said you hadn’t felt too good
    And had left early, I couldn’t come to the de mont
    Gig, as had to catch the italy flight next day!
    Small world when Nikolai told me , he had
    Produced ” all the fun of the fair” in the west end’
    What a lovely guy he is…
    Goes without saying would be good to catch up
    Leicester v west ham home or away!
    Promise not to do my David Essex impression!

    I am really looking forward to seeing you and your band in Legends Live in October at the Leeds Arena.
    I have been a devoted fan since 1974 and have seen you perform many a time, I still get as excited to see you as I did in my teenage years. You are a very special man to me and always will be.
    Love always Julie (from Hull).

  284. Julie Evans says:

    Since seeing David in the original London cast of Godspell I have seen a further three productions, two of which were very disappointing but I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed a matinee performance at the Roedean Theatre last weekend. It captured some of the fun and emotion of the original, with a lot of energy expended by the talented young performers. The day was made even more special by having an interval conversation with the ever-affable Tim Newman. Well done to everyone connected to it!

  285. Janice prime says:

    Hello David it’s your birthday in a few days could I send you a birthday card it would mean the world to me I’ve been a life long fan for many many yrs lots love always Janice prime xxxxxxx

  286. Kay smith says:

    Hi David, just wondering what you’re doing for your 70th birthday, I can remember queuing for tickets for a show the year you were 40 and two fans had you a cake made. I hope the family will be doing something special for you, you deserve it , enjoy what ever you do, all my love Kay x

  287. Lynn maidment says:

    I have loved david essex from when I was a very young girl aged 58 now, but only got the chance to see him live once, in all the fun of the fair when I lived near to Eastbourne. Am now living in lancing near worthing, and disabled, so probably won t ever get the chance to go again, but seeing that show was the best evening of my whole life, so thank you all so much for at least making that one trip possible.

  288. Karen Day says:

    What a lovely 60th birthday present my youngest sister got for me, a copy of Faded Glory with a personal message signed by David. Thank you David and I know it is a little early but happy 70th birthday to you on 23rd.

  289. Lesley Danks says:

    Hi, Late last year I requested a signed photo of David. Up to this date I have not received the signed photo. Please let me know if I need to pay for postage as I do live in Australia and maybe the signed photos are only for British fans.
    Thanking you.

    Hi guys,
    Just wanted to let you know that I ordered the missing you set a while back, it has never arrived, this morning I ordered all the fun of the fair and I sent it to a different address but I also noticed its being handled directly by you now, is that correct? Hopefully this one will arrive.

    • Essex Admin says:

      The Fair DVD is handled by us yes, but the Missing you tour package isn’t. Please get in touch with
      Nyquest who you’d have bought it from as we don’t have any record of the sales. Hope they can help, if you’re still having problems let us know.
      Kind regards- D E Management

  291. Julie Waterhouse says:

    Hi David and Team David. My mum has been a huge fan of David’s for as long as I can remember and I’m not young haha. My mum and I are going to the legends tour in October at Wembley, I was wondering if there is any chance of a quick meet and picture for her, she would be so pleased if she could. She met David briefly at a book signing but didn’t get a photo.

    Her name is Linda and she is 70 next year x Thank you

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Julie, Unfortunately the exit to the Arena isn’t easily accessible, so it’s not likely that you’ll see David after the show. Sorry I can’t be more helpful. Kind regards D E Management

  292. John Holman says:

    Hi David, I’m researching a old recording released by David and Rozza “Time Of Our Life”. Written by Arnold, Martin, Morrow and Hiller. Can you confirm if this David on this release is you?

    We are meeting up again in September at Thorsby Hall for your show.
    Thank-you .

  296. Julie Feeney says:

    Hello all,
    Is David doing any upcoming TV shows/interviews or radio shows? I thought I would ask as I always seem to miss the ones he does do.
    Thanks Julie

  297. Bev Mannering says:

    Hi David, Just wanted to say i got your CD’s/DVD the other week & its brilliant, i wasn’t able to come & see you on your final tour, with you not able to make it to Kent. Watching the DVD it was like i was there with you, i was singing away really enjoyed it, some of the old songs, brilliant, they brought back so many good memories. I remember you singing Ships That Pass In The Night, years ago at the Grand Theatre, Leeds, I have seen you about 44 times since 1978 & have enjoyed every show that you’ve done. Will miss you not touring anymore, you are a true gentlemen David. Take care Love Bev xx

  298. Sally says:

    Hi David, this made me happy – My Daughter works as a part time care Assistant in a Nursing Home, while at college, she loves it! Gonna Make You A Star, came on the radio, and a resident that doesn’t speak, let alone sing, knew the words and sang along! The Best ones, are always on your mind!! I’m Coming Home Soon!…. Love Sally (Essex)xx

    Will you ver release boogie nights on d v d

  300. Mal Richards says:

    Just wanted to say I say you in your show Mutiny in London years ago with the late Frank Finlay and Sinetta, it was wonderful, and after the show you were kind enough to take the time to sign the programme even though the show had been running quite some time by then, it’s a shame there is no dvd or blu ray recording available, I was also lucky enough to get tickets to see you in the Swansea Grand Theatre a few years back, you had us dancing in the isles, it was amazing, finally I went to see Silver Dream Racer in Swansea in 1980 with my late Mum and it has influenced me my entire life so far, i’m 53 now and still work in the motorcycle trade, I came across this whilst looking for soundtrack recordings of Mutiny and Silver Dream Racer to buy, also a blu ray of Silver Dream Racer, I already own both versions of the DVD, and I did have it on Betamax which cost £80 in 1981… crazy…

  302. Maree Shrples says:

    Hello David

    I was born in 1950 and enjoyed your music in the 70s. I just happened to pick up “Over the Moon” at the library last week and absolutely loved it, your writing is another talent in addition to your music, so easy to read and so enjoyable, and you come through as a warm caring person to your family and friends. What an amazing life you have led (and I guess more to come).

    Kind Regards

  323. Steve Shine says:

    Dear David and Essex Admin Team
    My Sister Julie is now 56 and has been a massive fan since the early days. She has been to every show and concert you’ve ever been in. I grew up listening to your albums and then CDs and my earliest memory is of her singing your latest hit into her hairbrush. It’s fair to say you have been the soundtrack to her life.
    She is getting married for the third (and hopefully last time) on 25th March to Allan Harper and it would mean so much to her to have a signed card from David, wishing her the best of luck. I have sent a card to the PO box listed below and would really appreciate it if David would sign if for her and Allan.
    Yours Sincerely
    Steve Shine

    • Essex Admin says:

      Will check tomorrow for you.

    • Julie says:

      My brother wrote to you in March asking for David to sign a wedding card for me. I got married in March and have been a big fan since the 70s. I have been to every concert and every show have every album. I received the card and picture all signed the weekend. I just want to say thank you very much to David and his team. This was the best surprise I have ever had. Xxx Julie

  334. Janet Simpson says:

    Brought the hardback back in October soon as it came out, but have been so busy not had time to read it. At Reading sign in I got the paperback, so this last week was determined to read it finally. Thoroughly enjoyed it and as a person born in St Thomas’s Hospital in Lambeth who lived in Peckham and Bermondsey, until a forced move to the countryside when I was six and my parents’ broke up, (not the norm in the late 50’s), it took me back to places that my mum still talks about with affection now. Also other vague memories I have of things you talked about in the book. The story was so down to earth and real, with the genuine ups and downs and hardships, of an ordinary family. The girlie things you put into this story about a boxer were smashing as well, making it not just a blokes book. I felt at times like you were writing it especially for me. Total lump in my throat and tears at the end. Thanks David and again for the signing, chat and photos on the 25th February. Love Jan x

  335. sharon prosser says:

    Hi,all at admin. Thank you for finding the episode of ‘Heartbeat’ for me, have finally got round to watching it!! I wonder if any other fans have viewed it? Brings back memories!! Does David remember much about it? Would like his feedback if possible. Thank you. Love. Sharon. P.s. Any news on DVD yet?xx

  336. Diana says:

    Hi David will you be doing any more book signing

  337. Julia Beeby says:

    Hi David, my Auntie (Dette) is a massive fan of yours and for her 60th had tickets to see your 2016 tour. Sadly she was unable to make the concert because of heavy traffic delays and was really upset. I’ve only just found this out and want to cheer her up. Would it be possible to have a signed photo wishing her a Happy Birthday.

    Can you also tell me when your DVD of the 2016 tour is out so I can get it her.

    Hello David hope you are well I was just wondering when ur did will be released from the missing you tour love you always take care God bless xxx

  340. Anna says:

    Oops forgot one more thing I couldn’t resist not mentioning
    I read your twitter post about the strange object in the sky and it being the sun … it made me smile and look up today in Essex it’s pipped it’s face a little but as I walked my dog an Iranian poet of a few centuries back came to mind and his words were I quote
    Look at the sun and the amount of times it appears never once has it said to the Earth you owe me …. it has just lit up the whole sky with its beautiful golden light in that moment I just said thank you To that little pip shining through those clouds. It was something to be grateful for no matter how little or big hahahaha after all when we look up and see don’t we all smile and feel that Lillie bit more happier and positive hahahahaha I’m not sure if you read these posts maybe not but your fans will and perharps it may put a smile on there faces bye

  341. Mary mullett says:

    Dear David,When will we know about the arena concerts?Lovely news!Mary.

  342. Anna says:

    Good morning David
    I missed all of your book signing … please schedule a couple more ….maybe Cambridge might be a nice place and fairly central for those a Lillie more north to be able to get to.

    I hope your not too tired and maybe think about it if you have a spare window of time in your rather busy life .

    Apologies if I’m being a little demanding as a fan … I’m not just selfish haha again apologies for that

    Have a lovely day

    Here’s a beautiful quote by my favourite person mother Teresa to you slightly adapted for you by me lol

    As many times as I have seen you …. watched you amongst the crowds of adoring and deserving fans … my soul regonises another beautiful soul within its mist …. not the physical you the higher you

    And each time I want to recite these words to you that higher you

    You are humble
    And nothing can ever touch you
    Neither Praise or disgrace
    Because you know what you are

      And I spent many school holidays and other days when I should have been at school picking strawberries in Wisbech in fact it was the only pocket money I ever had … being the 6th child of a large Italian family you can imagine some of the poverty we experience so strawberry picking for me was a godsend but I loved it . waking up 4 am getting into the open truck with all the others and then up and down those fields filling those punnets I loved the smell, the leaves with morning mist on them and the earth smelt amazing
      I’m going to read your book

  352. Janet Simpson says:

    Is it correct you are coming to Reading on 25th February for your book signing. Are you putting it on the Website. Thanks cant wait.


  353. sharon prosser says:

    Hi,all. Iwrote on this page on feb 5th,regarding a query about an appearance by David years ago on’Heartbeat’. As i have’nt received a reply i wondered if you had’nt been able to find anything out? Love,Sharon x

  354. Jane says:

    Could you please tell me when the DVD of the I’ll Be Missing You tour will be available. Many thanks.

  355. Bev Mannering says:

    Hi David, It was lovely seeing you on Country File on Sunday, you look really good. I’ve recorded it so i keep watching it.

    I wondered if it was possible for you to send a signed photo to my friend Maureen, she has followed you from the beginning (she will be 70 this year) & she still follows you now. Sadly on Monday she lost her husband Jim, & a signed photo from you David if possible, I feel will help to cheer her up at this sad time. She only retired from work in Dec. we worked together for over 20 years. Take care Love Bev xx

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Bev, if you can leave details of where to send it, David would be more than happy to send your friend a signed photo.

  356. Kay smith says:

  359. Simon bull says:

    Hi David, we are a small social club in West Norfolk in the small village of Walton Highway. We are a committee run club, and any profits have to go back into the club to help the community.
    Would love to have you come to our club to perform some songs or maybe an ‘evening with’.
    I know we probably can’t afford you, but if we don’t ask ?
    We are about 8 miles from Kings Lynn and 5 miles from Wisbech.
    We can only accommodate about 150 people, so as I said a small venue.
    Bill Herd from the Rubettes has just moved into the village and is going to bring the group down in April so we are trying to get the club known and improve the facilities.
    You can find usher n Facebook and Twitter.
    Thanks For your time David.
    Best wishes

  360. Jane Butler says:

    Hello, please would it be possible for me to have a signed photo of David? It would mean a lot as my dear husband, Clive, sadly passed away on Saturday 31st December 2016 and for the last 38yrs he has taken me all over the country to see David in various things. My favourite song “It’s Gonna Be Alright” is giving me a lot of comfort at present. Thank you.

  361. sharon prosser says:

    Hi,all. I’ve been watching ‘Heartbeat’ sometimes as it is being shown on a few channels at different times. I know David appeared in an episode as a traveller if i remember correctly,would anyone be able to tell me if this episode will be broadcast again,and if so when and what channel,or,has it already been shown. Thank you. Sharon.x

  362. Jenny says:

    Hi everyone
    Booked for Bognor – of course! Hope it’s not as chilly as last time… Wet and windy…
    What on earth is going on with the DVD? Is there a problem or is it just taking time to get it exactly and fantastically right? Hoping for some good news soon.
    Jenny D

  369. STEPHEN MCDINE says:

    Hello David,
    I have a black and white photograph of an advert from the mid 1970’s of The David Essex Band endorsing Ibanez instruments and TAMA drums. I was wondering if anybody has a copy of this picture in colour?. I am a member of a forum called “Ibanez Collectors World” and the guitars and the mandolin in this 70’s advert are of interest to me. The models of guitars endorsed are now very sort after as collectors pieces. Did you ever use them live on stage?
    Have you any information about this advert?

    Thank you

    Stephen McDIne

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Stephen, yes David did use them on stage. Someone recently sent a photo of David on the drum kit. I will try and find it for you. Kind regards, Sarah – D E Management

  376. Denise says:

    Hi could you tell me please which Butlins will David be appearing at in September many Thanks Denise

  377. Bev Mannering says:

    H Admin, I wondered if it was possible for my best friend Jill to have a signed photo of David, he kindly signed one for me in November. Jill & I have been to quite a lot of David’s concerts & enjoyed all of them, we also enjoyed seeing David in “All the Fun of the Fair” at the Garrick Theatre, he was excellent. Take care Love Bev x

  378. Nichola Good says:

    Hi, has David ever thought of doing Mutiny again, I have followed David since I was young but I am only 33 so I never had the pleasure of seeing this amazing musical live. With technology of today I think this would a great musical to tour again. I know David is done with touring but he could direct it and then see it tour around the country. I feel it would have an amazing response xxx

  379. Kay smith says:

    Hi admin, I’ve just spotted in the national press dates for David appearing at butlins over the coming year. Can you confirm any dates before I try to book tickets, thanks Kay

  380. Linda Jones says:

    My husband used to take me everywhere to see David, as the tour dates were released we would plan where we would go, we would be in London on Saturday and Leeds on Sunday, Bournmouth the next week, then Torquay. I have wonderful memories of beautiful theatres and shows. We hadn’t been for a while but I decided to go to the very last concert in Wolverhampton (where I live) just for the memories I knew it would bring. My lovely husband passed away in May 2015, a victim of cancer, from diagnosis to the day he passed away was just 9 weeks, he was only 61 and we had been together since he was 14. I buried him just 3 days before our 42nd wedding anniversary. I really enjoyed the concert and as I thought wonderful memories came flooding back and the one song that actually made me cry was ‘it’s gonna be alright’. The words said it all, it was just as if the song had been written for the dreadful night I sat with Mike and watched him slowly go to sleep forever. Thanks for giving me some wonderful memories to hang on to.

    • Essex Admin says:

      Thank you for your message Linda, I found it moving and I’m pleased that you, with Mike, have good memories and that I was a part of them, best wishes, David

    Hi David, In November you kindly sent me a signed photo (which i received on my birthday, so that was a lovely birthday present) this photo is now alongside the framed photo i was able to have taken with you when you were at The Leas, Folkestone. I wondered if it was possible to have another signed photo David please for my friend Jackie who as followed you since the 70’s too like i have. I also wondered when i would be able to purchase your DVD from the Missing you Tour, something i really look forward to watching and singing along to. I’ve also got the DVD when you were at the Royal Albert Hall in the 80’s my friend Bev & I (two Bev’s lol) traveled down to see you from Leeds, Yorkshire and it was a brilliant night. David i would like to wish you and your family a Very Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year & All The Very Best for 2017. I’ll be missing you take care Love Bev :-) xx

    Dear David i have been meaning to write to you since 5th dec 2016 when i got back to perth australia where i have lived for the past 8 yrs, I wrote on this guestbook to let you know i had planned a trip to go all the way back to uk where i am from macclesfield originally, so i wouldnt miss your final solo tour, i saw you in blackpool and i cannot express enough how you went above and beyond as usual my expectations x you were amazing and i cannot thankyou enough when we all went to stand at the front of the stage (very naughty of us x) i was stood right infront of you and you seemed to recognise me and as you approached the fans and touched they hands you shook mine and said hello x that is always been something i love about you is your personal touch with your fans x it absoloutely put the icing on the cake and i will never forget it. The only thing that was a little disappointing was we got directed to the wrong place for your usual signing and i believe you signed for 20 mins at another door it was a shame but i have met you many many times at stage doors and got up close it just would have been nice with it being your final tour x you look amazing and i wish you all the best for your future with your family and a very merry xmas & happy new year take care david i wouldnt have missed your tour for the world x keep on smiling your wonderful cheeky smile loads of love one of your faithful fans

    Thank you so much for my signed photo – just wondering when the DVDs will be out – thanks

  409. Jenny says:

    Re – the documentary – Ran out of money? That’s crazy! Surely someone’s going to pick it up? I reckon we could all finance it with a Crowdfunder – I would be happy to support it There’s just the small problem of getting the right experts in place to finish it…. Who has the rights and all the work completed so far? Is it still Alan G Parker? I’m pretty certain the demand is there from the public to see it and buy it – but of course we would probably need some sort of a corporate set-up and deal I guess – Any experts out there who know how this can be done???
    Jenny D

    • Essex Admin says:

      It was put on Pledge but not enough people pledged to put it forward and yes it’s still with Alan G Parker.

  413. Julie Waller says:

    To Dear David, Sue, Sarah and Verity,
    A few words to thank you ALL for your wonderful help after the chaos caused by the ‘bonkers’ Wolverhampton stage door security staff’s refusal to allow us access to you for the presentation of your gift which you had okayed. We were devastated to have let you down even though it wasn’t our fault. The thank you videos sent by Sarah and Verity were fabulous. The personal one you sent to me was incredibly special David, and Sue, your kindness and patience in taking photos of the Memories Book which was ‘Sally from Somerset’s’ personal gift to David, for us all to see in the DEGC was ‘above and beyond the call of duty’. You are a star Mrs Cook! Thank you all and we wish all of you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a bonkers New Year!
    Much love from Julie and the DEGC xxxxxxx

    • Essex Admin says:

      Hello Donna, Apologies for not replying sooner. You can get them on or leave your message on here and it won’t be published.

      • Donna says:

        Thank you but that’s the email address I’ve written to a few times, but have had no reply. My mum went to see David’s concert in Ipswich last month. She bought a VIP ticket and had a wonderful time. Unfortunately she thinks David wasn’t feeling well as he didn’t do the meet and greet after the show. So she couldn’t get her books signed. The venue had also sold out of programmes so she wasn’t able to buy one of these either. (She thought the programme was included in the VIP package, but maybe she was wrong about that)

        Would it possible to send you her 2 books for David to sign please, as she was very disappointed she didn’t get to meet him. And is it possible to buy a programme from you please.

        Thank you, Donna.

        • Essex Admin says:

          Hello Donna,
          We don’t have any programmes to sell, sorry, but you can send the books to:
