My first post here!
Have fond memories of my family's involvement with performances at Grimesthorpe Wesley Hall (my parents married there) and me hiding behind the bins as a small boy so as to avoid giving a solo to the old folks gathering!
Later memories of very frequent variety concerts, social evenings, dances at Low Shiregreen Methodist Church plus all the fun of writing, producing and performing together in the annual pantomimes (which ran for a week and sold out). I confess to doing my best to entertain as Buttons and one of the Seven Dwarfs ( not telling which one!) and my father always took the part of the Dame.
Still have copies of the scripts somewhere. Happy, innocent, times!
