  • theres loadza looneys n da lokal nuttas there the entertainment coz theres nuffink 4 uz teenagers 2do
  • I was a student at Farnham Art School in the early nineties. Everyone used to talk about some huge guy, who use to wander round town chatting to himself, and had the ocassional outburst of swearing; oh how the Farnham housewifes laughed. We always knew him as Mad Tony not Eric, big bloke, long black hair wooley hat. Bit scary until you got to know him.
  • The crazy man with a stick.
  • Mad eric is cool, and old. The woman who hits people with her handbag is cool and old. There is a busker with a accordion and another one with an accoustic guitar he is pretty good.
  • Daniel Shehata a local legend from the days of the first pop idol, every week on your tv cheesy as hell. Also very well known on the local karaoke circuit if lionel richies your thing.
  • Adrian Darbyshire now there a face in farnham every bugger knows Ade
  • Dave is the local GNARLATRON. Fierce lines at the skatepark, hardocore slams galore, many gallons booze consumed. 'NUFF RESPECT!
  • Eric! we all love him and farnham wouldnt be the same without him! the guitar man in the lion and lamb, he is so bad but never gives up! the 'sailor' at the bottom of the lion and lamb with his accordian, bad again but always happy, thats gotta be worth 5p! The old woman with a birds nest for hair, makes me sick thinking about her, just keep an eye out!
  • STAR in the lion and lamb
  • Buskers? A riff raff element in Farnham? No way, this is the Home counties! There may be a busker in the Lion And Lamb Yard but thats your lot. Sorry, strict council.
  • Some fucked up guy at the bottom of the lion and lamb yard, Damm i dont know what is up with this guy but he is messy. Allhallows school has some nice steps around the back. There is some good roof gaps at the back of the woolmead.
  • the guy i always see is the one with a guitar..and then theres sometimes those peeps who dress up as stone statues then scare all the kids when they move..
  • Plenty of Squinty eyed, hunch-backed, dribbling accordian players...
  • There is a man who plays the accordion at the bottom of the Lion and Lamb Yard - not bad.
  • There's usually someone trying to seperate you from your small change at the entrance to the Lion & Lamb Yard.
