What Went On
March 13th - Performers’ Night - Food & Drink theme         March 27th
It was about half and half - songs
about food as opposed to drink
and a wide range it was too!
The foods mentioned included
Jambalaya, “tuppenny” rice and
treacle, green onions, rabbit,
bread and soup; the drinks ranged
from  tea and coffee to margarita,
nettle wine,  and “Tequila!” which
SRS - Sue, left with
a lagerphone, Sally
& Robin gave us Neil Diamond’s heartfelt
story of the benefits of “Red Red Wine”
Peter Wimpenny about
to do the famous sax
solo on “Baker Street
was played by
Hannah Tobin
(below, right)
along with Dad,
Chris who went
on to give fruit
a mention (I’d
like to say it
was one of
five, but it
wasn’t) with
Blueberry Hill.

We had surprise
visitors in the form
of Wes Finch and
The Rude Mechanicals
who did two settings
of songs from
Twelfth Night, which
of course begins:
“If music be the
food
of love, play on...”
Norman and Chris
Tobin re-created
Antony Newley’s
early 60’s hit
version of “Pop
Goes The Weasel”
with Laura Kisby
on bass - the song
(or nursery rhyme)
starts “Half a pound
of tuppenny rice...”
