King & Tuckfield

Graham Aubrey Tuckfield

Graham Aubrey Tuckfield struts the streets of Harrogate in his gleaming shoes and perfectly tailored suit with the keys to his Rolls Royce jiggling in his hand. The car was his prized possession, long dreamt of in the black of long shifts down a Yorkshire mine. His perfect swagger was thanks to years of ballet dancing from the age of seven and time enlisted as a paratrooper in the Second World War, when he swapped identities with his cousin to make him old enough to serve.

Graham worked in the mines before and after the war for over 25 years but dusted off the soot to follow his true passion dance, where he soon met Joan’s dancing daughter.
