To End All Wars – World War 1 Memorial Concert
It’s been a busy couple of months with rehearsals and performances. Fabulous pianist William Godfree and I were the first theatre show to open at a lovely new community venue at 96 Shenley Road, Borehamwood (see photo), where the staff came from Wyllyots Theatre. Potters Bar to run it. Lovely audience and great feedback.
I was proud too to perform at the World War 1 memorial concert To End All Wars in the Milland Memorial Hall, West Sussex with William, former BBC broadcaster Martin Muncaster and Hugh Bonneville. Many thanks to West End actress Janie Dee for passing my details on to them. I really enjoyed both preparing for it and performing on the day. Patrick (my husband) and I stayed with the Brigadier who organised the event, and he lent me a beautiful dress made for his late wife to meet the Queen – I can’t tell you how I felt!
Actors Rechoired held our bi-annual concert at the quirky and wholly appropriate venue The Cinema Museum last weekend, and apart from singing with my church for the Carol Service tomorrow, I’ve now actually got a bit of time off to reflect and gather my wits!
Some interesting developments for 2015 are starting to take shape, and I’ll let you know nearer the times.
– Wartime Women:the Khaki Cabaret at the Sarah Thorne Theatre, Broadstairs, Kent
– Wartime Women at The Rondo Theatre, Bath
Have a lovely and peaceful Christmas, and I wish you all the very best for 2015.
