Unknown Canterbury pub 1966

What was the penny towers saving for?

 

Another as yet unknown one from Rory Kehoe. This time showing the inside of the pub. he says the following:-

Another mystery pub for you. This one's in Canterbury and the images are stills from an 8mm cine film of (presumably) a charity night, probably c.1966 but might be a year or so later. It's almost certainly a Whitbread pub (hmm...weren't they all, so that doesn't help much!) but looking at the pump clips, it could be a Mackeson house, as they aren't Fremlin's, Sheps, or Tomson & Wootton. If it is a Mackeson house, that'd narrow it down to c.10 pubs and I can think of a few of these that it isn't.

Over to your trusty band of experts!

Les Bishop says the following:- "Behind the bar, in the fawn top/black tie, is Norman Wisdom. He was probably appearing locally (at the Marlowe Theatre?) and doubtless pushed the penny towers over."
