Saturday Fun

Saturday Fun

I started the day with the Very Merry Christmas Show, put on by the Nine Lives Theater Company at the Institute. I caught the morning show and what a brilliant way to start the day. My Wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the entertaining spectacle which featured dancing, singing and an amusing plot and characters. All performed absolutely flawlessly by the Nine Lives Team, who just seem to go from strength to strength.

After that I passed through town and noticed how exceptionally busy it was. Heaving, I think, is the correct term! Good to see.
 
Then it was on to Lyncroft Care Home on Clarkson Avenue where I opened their Christmas Fayre and then spent an hour with the staff, residents and guests. I picked up some good stocking fillers too, from the many varied stalls that were selling there.
 
This evening I had been invited to the Queen Mary Centre for the Vive La Voce show. This was a funded by Market Place and driven by the talented Linda Ekins, which has brought people who did not believe they could sing together. With just 12 weeks training these “non singers” have put on this show. Now I thought this stuff only happened in movies, but Linda has certainly proved that real life can be just as surprising because this group of singers sounded like they had been singing for years. Linda says that anybody can sing and her techniques give evidence to her claims because this was a fun night full of surprising and well-performed songs. Others will have their own favourites by I particularly liked Scarborough Fayre, which had just the right haunting medieval sound and harmonies. Well done all!
