Stanway in Colchester

Variety Show

U3A Stanway put on a Variety Show in January 2018. Here are a selection of photographs of those taking part and doing their 'turn', the audience in the interval and the raffle and winners

Although the entertainment was much enjoyed by all, it should be mentioned that the entire event could not have taken place had it not been for the sterling efforts of those "behind the scenes": volunteer helpers who sold tickets, checked tickets at the door, put out the chairs (and at the end put them away), organised the tea and coffee at the interval, provided prizes for the raffle, checked the timings on the rehearsal, organised the loan of sound equipment, helped with the car parking and so on. There are too many to mention in full - our apologies if anyone has been missed - but we cannot end without an enormous Vote of Thanks to Terry, Gavin and Patrick, our three hard-working "Jacks of all trades" who got everyone on to the stage in good time, helped check sound and lights, took charge of opening and closing the curtains, and generally gave their all in the cause. Thank you three so very much!
