Gary Lucas performs a Live set for #GMVPride2020 introduced by Mama G


Inspired in his teens by the directly honest lyricism and passion of Alanis Morissette and the avant-garde pop of Tori Amos, his influences today continue to span the depths of the alternative and the mainstream, landing his original songs somewhere in the middle: sensitive, thoughtful and hook-laden. They often reveal a struggle to find peace and identity in such a loud and busy world. New single, "Maybe I" finds Lucas in a quietly hopeful mood, wondering whether he "could be the boy that everybody sees". But it's still only a maybe.

Many of our club members are also here for our social scene, meeting new friends whilst getting fitter. Our members mostly come from south-east London and Kent so we can usually organise transport for those who need it. So get in touch and we look forward to welcoming you to our club.

Off the hockey pitch, we also have a number of social events like escape room nights, swingers golf club, cocktail nights, London pride, country walks... In the summer, we also run Rush Hockey sessions every two weeks. Keep an eye on the calendar for events during the new season.

He joined the NHS HIV/AIDS department where he worked tirelessly through his educational role in supporting schools and teachers in HIV awareness, and facilitated 'sexuality awareness' programmes at a time when 'Section 28' was still rife. He also co-wrote and facilitated 'Coming Out' groups for young gay men across Medway & Gravesham at this time, despite opposition from local Tory MP's
After many years of struggling with his own mental health issues, he's starting to pick up the guitar again 🙂
