The Bartitsu Club; IOW Attract Interest from Private Investigator !

Yesterday, May 19th, an impromptu training display from The Bartitsu Club; IOW attracted interest from a local private investigator, not for anything untoward, but because he happened to be at a vintage fayre.
Dan Whitehead, instructor at The Bartitsu Club; IOW, received an invite to Jayne’s Vintage and Retro Fayre, at Wootton, Isle of Wight. A short, informal bartitsu demonstration was quickly organised with the help of Jim Evans, also of the Wight Pirates re-enactment group, and Patrick Barry, also of Cutting Edge Theatre. As a result, The Bartitsu Club; IOW has been invited to return at future vintage events. Jayne’s Vintage Fayres are organised by Jayne Read of Island Memories and can be found on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/vintageislandmemories
