2014 "UK" Walton's Event

This very first UK Walton's event went very well and was enjoyed by all those who attended. Those who had bought Golden Tickets were able to enjoy a very nice meal with both Jon and his wife Marion the night before the main days event. This was a special opportunity for fans to chat and spend time with Jon in a very relaxed environment and was a great success.


The following morning Jon and his band, brought down from Liverpool to perform with Jon on stage carried out a 2 hour sound check when they went through the song list for that nights performance. Then after lunch the event began when those attending had the chance to meet with Jon, get an autograph and take some photo's.


Then Jon was interviewed by Martin who hosted the event and the guests got the chance to hear about Jon's time on the show, speak about other cast members and his music career, after which they themselves had chance to ask questions of Jon.


Following the raffle and auction when everyone had the chance to win and buy some great Walton's items, Jon and his band prepared to play live on stage.


This was for many attending the highlight of the day. Jon and his band performed for about 70 minutes, and he sang some of his own original songs as well as some cover versions of such people as elvis and the Beatles. The whole event was enjoyable for everyone and the society would like to thank all those who came as far away as Wales and Ireland and from across the UK, but especially Jon and Marion for taking time out of there own trip to Europe to appear at this UK event.
