This is James’ THIRD guest night at Raising the Rafters - the first being when he was only 14 - and once again he will be raising funds for the charity close to his heart WATER AID.

STANLEY ACCRINGTON

Stanley emerged from the dark days of the late 1970's and has been terrorising the cultural world ever since!
He has written hundreds of songs in a range of styles on a vast rake of subjects. There are old-style songs on current happenings and modern style songs on ancient events. There are poems, pastiches, parodies, and possibly anything.
Apart from the silly and very silly material, Stanley has always been writing serious songs to confuse the situation further. He has performed hundreds of times at a wide range of events all over UK and occasionally beyond.
Stanley has been performing all over UK and occasionally beyond at a wide variety of locations and events. He always tries to be both relevant and entertaining. (The pigeon-hole to put this stuff in is "miscellaneous-ish")
This is a very special gig for Stanley and for Raising the Rafters as Stanley is celebrating his “Ruby Anniversary” this year - 40 years of making people helpless with laughter! And he’s marking this impressive milestone in his career with a visit to Rafters!
Stanley is still considering which charity should benefit from this night so watch this space!
