Bizarrely, the last minute cancellations continued into another year. Dave Wilson and Kip Winter stepped in for Bill Whaley and Dave Fletcher (who thereby missed their sixteenth appearance) and gave a brilliant performance, one of their final gigs in the UK before their extended tour of Australia and New Zealand in 2017.
In May Colin Hayes decided to step down from running the singaround, feeling he had earned a rest and might be running out of insults. He didn't disappear completely and and carried on running the raffle on club nights. Paul Dickinson took over, with Liz Padgett assisting.
