I's fortgotten until I looked thrugh the letters I sent to the unedited versions of the letters I sent to the Coventry Evening Telgraph in relation to the Shut Down Coventry Shopping Precinct Concert, there more things being planned. A few got through but some of the ideas didn't. This post is to logged the the ones 'that got away', mainly through lack of funding and wider support, not to mention time llocation. It was an intense and active period.
- Underground film club - idea came from the Umbrella's Transcendental Cauldron - the first event I'd
- Street-theatre Group - The ground floor of the Holyhead Youth Centre was actually a theatre with a stage and
- Trenchcoat - I'd forgotten this until I re-read the unedited letter I sent to the editor of the Coventry Evening Telegraph over the shut down concert incident. I was planning another magazine - Trenchcoat - that would deal with wider issues than Hobo but might also incorporate Hobo magazine. These may have been environmental, life style, campaigning issues (for better facilities) and features.
- Coventry Arts Festival - We also announced plans in the letter for a Coventry Arts Festival in 1975 'incorporating local talent of all varieties, with some events being organised by Hobo and other organised by other organisations but incorporated into the programme. It will be intended to appeal to as many people as possible without mercenary objective." This never materialised ( well not through Hobo anyway - there was one in the 80's).
