Les Bass

The theme was festive music from around the world - some that you won't have heard, as well as sing-along favourites. We supported St Raphael's Hospice in memory of our ex-Chairman Leslie Bass who died earlier in the year. He is greatly missed. We raised £500 for the charity. We were also fund-raising for our Spring concert, which is a major event involving an orchestra.

Tickets were £12.50, with £2.50 of each ticket going to St Raphael's Hospice. Concessions were £10.00, with Family Tickets £30 (2 Adults + 2 under 16s) also available, including a donation of £5. The ticket included the printed programme and a complimentary warm mince pie and mulled wine or hot spiced apple juice before the show. Refreshments were also available in the interval. More than 160 people attended.
