Site Status

This site has been under development for some time and now hosts a significant body of LURG related material. You will find original programmes, running orders, publicity material, reviews (good and bad!), plus facts about known performances. Also included are many performance and social photos, some previously unseen for nearly four decades. Probably most significant, are the recordings of many early shows, along with a few rehearsals.

Ex-members can also actively participate in the site. Information contribution forms are dotted all round the site. Additionally, registered members can comment on much of the site's content or post in the forum.

That said, the site is very much a work in progress. There are many gaps to be filled in the historical content, as detailed on the Wanted! page. Former members are encouraged to contribute missing information, photos, memorabilia, documents or recordings.

Well, it's 41 years today since LURG was formed and none of us appear to have aged a bit ... though maybe my eyesight isn't what it was. Anyway, to mark the occasion, a recording of the gloriously chaotic first meeting has been added.
