8th & 9th December - Take Another Dip

As 2023 is our 80th anniversary, we are celebrating with a cabaret of members performing songs from many of our previous shows. This will take place in the Studio with tables arranged "club style" with a maximum of eight people per table.

The cost will be £17, including the cabaret and a fish and chip supper.

It is named Take Another Dip, as the first show we ever performed was Take A Dip, in 1942.

Due to the seating arrangements, please contact Doug Pope to purchase your seat via email: mail@douglaspope.com.

What a way to end our special year! We look forward to celebrating this fundraising event with as many of you as possible.
