Fans in party mood

A CAMDEN Town pub became a “house of fun” on Saturday when scores of Madness devotees arrived for a fundraiser.

Members of Mad Chat, one of the band’s fan­clubs, organised a party at the Dublin Castle in Parkway – the legendary venue where Suggs and Co played when they were starting out.

Landlady Peggy Conlon receives her framed award from Brian Dearman.

They gave landlady Peggy Conlon, whose family has run the pub for decades, a framed award in recognition of her support for the group.

One fan raised more than £2,000 by having his beard shaved off at the event. Mad Chat has rais­ed £4,500 this year for Make A Wish Foundation.
