Music-All
Tue Jun 4th 2pm Cusop Village Hall. The theme this time will be "Minerals". To clarify, if it isn't animal or vegetable, it's mineral. Remember, Diamonds are a girl's best friend.
The Music-All Group had a successful and at times hilarious afternoon on 7 May when the theme was "Weather". We enjoyed 24 tracks, most with visuals, and were left with sounds and images which will live long in our memories. Not least the larger than life appearance of the Weather Girls, filling the screen with "It's Rainin' Men.
We can play CD’s, Cassettes and Smart phones and provided he is given plenty of notice, John Price will be happy to show music videos. Video requests from Members to John Price in good time please.
Normal cost is £2 which goes towards the facilities and tea and biscuits, although sometimes we can afford a freebie!
