Uni: PPSU May Ball 2: Gus Honeybun, Plymouth, Devon - 4th May 1987

It's the Plymouth Poly Students' Union May Ball in Plymouth's Guildhall, on Royal Parade. In this set (which is from the first half of the ball), legendary local TV celebro-rabbit Gus Honeybun makes an appearance on stage with Ian Dunwoody (Information and Communications officer) and Dave Archer (Social Committee chair), plus Gus's un-named handler. It looks like Gus is auctioning off a lifelong freedom of the students' union pass or something, as the ticket/card on display has the little-used Plymouth Polytechnic Students' Union official crest on it
