"PUTTING ON A SHOW"

With our Chairman
Melvyn Tarran


Followed by the AGM
 

A light hearted talk about the trials and tribulations of organizing a show at the Hawth Theatre Crawley in 2000 in which 100 people appeared for charity using  former stars from the D`Oyly Carte Opera Company, a chorus and full orchestra also remembering

the much loved Sunday afternoon Concerts at Sheffield Park some of which were recorded for posterity and occasions such as this. We had a very unexpected, never the less most welcome visitor Leon Berger, who last visited us on 18th October 2015.


This was a fund raising event,and said to be Melvyn`s last ever talk.
