Wine Tasting – July & September meetings

The Piedmont is the source of some beautiful wines and provided three excellent examples for our July meeting, including a delicious Gavi (La Toledana – Majestic – £11.99).  However, it also provided a most disappointing Barola, which received this year’s lowest group score; so much for a famous name!  We do not meet in August […]

Play Reading (Shakespeare) – August meeting

The subject on Wednesday, August 10th, is Pericles, Prince of Tyre.  New to most of us, it is listed as a comedy.  I will bring my ‘Shakespeare in a Nutshell’ to give us a brief understanding.  If you are interested, do come along: newcomers are always welcome!  Phyllis Lord.

Ukulele – August meetings

Although some of our number are fairly new to the Ukulele, we now feel we can offer ourselves as an entertainment act, ideally to an uncritical audience who might like to enjoy our singing and playing!  So if you might know of a group which would like us to perform for them, please contact myself […]
