This was the 1974 end of year special for this Christchurch-based music show (with a number of acts performing in exterior locations around the Garden City). A stellar cast includes Steve Gilpin (prior to Mi-Sex), Rob Guest (before musicals fame), Space Waltz (in technicolor glam rock glory), Annie Whittle (in the daffodils on the banks of the Avon), Rockinghorse (featuring 'Nature' composer Wayne Mason), Mark Williams (sparkling in lurex), Beaver (in full flight) and the archly named Drut who come complete with pyrotechnics (and really have to be seen to be believed).
Can you believe we took a gas bottle, flashpowder ingredients and a cannon prop on the plane. Today we would be suspect terrorists! We tested the cannon in the Motel carpark. It shot a plastic ball clear over the motel roof!– John Walmsley (Drut)
