This is a final reminder that this Saturday, 9th February, at 7.30pm, professional musicians Oliver and Samuel Hancock will play tribute to the comic genius of Flanders and Swann. The comedy duo played to packed houses in the 1950s and 1960s. Wikipedia reminds us that one of their songs was "All Gall"--a political satire based on the long career of Charles de Gaulle. At the time of writing, de Gaulle had recently vetoed the UK's first application to join the European Economic Community. Had he continued to succeed, we would have all been spared Brexit!
Anyway, come and find out which of the songs will be included in the programme. Enjoy some good, clean fun and contribute to our Church Welcome Project in the process. Tickets are £10 each and £5 for under eighteens. For more on Flanders and Swann from Wikipedia, click here.
