Coming to the end of January and we can start to look forward to a new Alfie year with some new shows and new music scheduled for this year. Those going to the Japanese concerts won’t have to wait very long to see Alfie but before you know it, June will be upon us and Fleetwood, London, Scarborough and Llangollen will be blessed with many Alfie’s Arrows descending upon them. For those of you not in the know, Alfie’s Arrows was a term chosen by Alfie fans several years ago; Alfie liked it and the merchandise of the time produced Alfie’s Arrows badges. Give me a shout if you’ve got one!
All fans would probably love to meet Alfie, even if they became somewhat tongue tied when speaking to him! If this is you, you are not alone! One of the most exciting things for fans is to enjoy a meet and greet experience with Alfie and over the years, these have changed format, from the very informal to the ‘sign and pose’ opportunity of recent years. Having said that, a meet and greet experience is still very special and seeing that Alfie smile just for you really does make your day, or even, dare I say, your year?!
Needless to say, apart from the actual “hello, how are you” and signing part of a meet and greet, the moment captured in a photo is the icing on the cake and a lasting memento of the day. Here are a few fans who sent me their photos, as well as a few taken at stage doors etc:
Thank you to everyone who sent me their photo, I just love seeing the happy faces! If your photo is featured here, please click here to send me your meet and greet story and it might feature in a future post!

What I loved about all these photos is getting to see the people behind the names. I have seen their posts for a few years but had no mental images for most of these fans. I also loved Alfie’s ever-evolving hair styles and Michael’s transformation through his weight loss.
Well Jane I’ve never been to a Meet and Greet but I do have an Alfie’s Arrow badge which I bought after attending the Storyteller tour.
