Play Reading (Shakespeare) – February & March meetings

We started to read ‘Cymbeline, King of Britain’ at our meeting on the 8th February in the Bowden Room.  Our guide ‘Shakespeare in a Nutshell’ tells us it’s a comedy which has ‘a besieged Princess, a subtle villain and a fiendish queen, a banished lover and a bedroom scene’.  Sounds fun!  If you’d like to […]

Creative Writing for Fun – February meeting

Usually we meet on the last Friday of the month, 2-4pm at St Nicholas Church, Little Bowden.  It’s a friendly group with varying degrees of skill, from beginners to the very experienced, and new members are always welcome.  Each month we read out our pieces and agree on a title for the following month.  The […]

SLU3A Singers

Rehearsals are going well for our concert which will take place immediately after the AGM in May.  New members are always welcome to join our very friendly group and if we had a sudden influx of gentlemen who can sing tenor or bass we could revert back to being a full choir.  Joy Swallow.

Cycling – March meeting

The first ride this year is on Friday, 3rd March.  Please meet at The Cherry Tree, Little Bowden, at 10.45am.  We shall need to order our lunch before setting off.  The route takes us through Clipston, Sibbertoft and Lubenham before returning to Market Harborough.  Graham Swallow.

Music Appreciation (Friday) – January meeting

At our January meeting, the group (much depleted by illness) listened to some popular classics from Russian composers.  We started with Mikhail Glinka’s overture ‘Ruslan and Lyudmila’ and this was followed by Tchaikovsky’s ‘Serenade for Strings’.  After a slightly early interval we moved on to the ‘Violin Concerto No 2 in D Minor’ by Henryk […]

Play Reading (Modern) – February meeting

Greg, besotted with the delectable Ginny, has made the journey to leafy Bucks to ask her parents’ blessing.  But the chap he takes to be Ginny’s father is actually her (married) former lover – who contrives to get the impression that this pleasant young man is in fact asking to marry Sheila, his wife!  Somehow, […]
