Tour Dates

I have recently (August 2019) revised this page. This follows an email exchange with Dr Charlotte Crofts who runs the Cary Grant Festival in Bristol.

Charlotte questioned the list of dates which originally included a long tour with the Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus.

The original list was believed to be accurate. However, recent research has shown that the Penders were performing elsewhere than the list stated. 

The following list excludes the Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus dates.

I have also done some more research to find corroborating evidence. This is mainly from newspaper cuttings. Links to these images are given in the Location column.
