 All the performers were members or friends of the society appeared before a packed house, a varied, and an enjoyable afternoon it was. Gilbert & Sullivan was featured, though most of the entertainment was traditional music hall fare. 

Members of the audience were encouraged to attire themselves in period clothing for the stupendous occasion.

To judge by the beaming faces and delighted comments of our wonderful audience, it was a great success!   So a big "thank you" to our talented performers, congratulations to those of you who were lucky enough to be there, and commiserations to those who didn't make it.
