Classic Clip: Wheeltappers and Shunters

Contrary to what you read today, the world wasn’t swanning around in Biba frocks and driving Cinzano in the 70s – the average couple were more likely to be at the social club drinking cheap beer (and a port and lemon for the lady).

The Wheeltappers and Shunters Social Club
was a TV show that captured the northern social club at its height – bad acts, bad fashion, big hair and all the beer you could drink. Captured her is Kathy Kirby belting it out like a good ‘un – but the real stars are the audience. Enjoy the 70s as it really was.
