Rainey's 18th and Clairesie's 21st - 11th June 1997

Lorraine's 18th birthday, Claire's 21st and a variety of other miscellaneous birthdays are all rolled into one for a big thrash in a marquee behind the Swan. These B&W scans are from a set of previously-unseen negs that had been floating around in a drawer for several years, so in many cases they're a bit scratched and dusty. They're also in no particular order (as usual)
