Maurice Huggett

I'm afraid there's been some bad news, as Maurice Huggett, our genial landlord, passed away on December 18th. There's a fond appreciation here, in the Daily Telegraph.

The Phoenix Artist Club was, and I hope still is, a remarkable venue.The surprisingly long run of BLOOD BROTHERS must owe a lot to the congeniality of the caveau below.
Maurice himself was, of course, a character. His collection of waistcoats, on display at the final show in his honour, said a lot about the man: he gave everyone from Player-Playwrights a warm welcome and I shall miss him.
