07 A Garland for Christmas

19th December, 2008, Felpham Village Hall

SYNOPSIS

 

Our Christmas production of ‘A Garland for Christmas’ took place on Friday 19th December at Felpham Village Hall.

The evening consisted of readings and Christmas poems plus the voices of Glenwood Ladies Choir. This very highly regarded local choir also led us at the end of the evening in singing all our favourite carols.

A licensed bar was provided and mulled wine, mincepies and sausage rolls were served in the interval.

The evening was devised and organized by Julia Webb and Margaret Burbidge and presented as a big thank you to members, friends and past audiences of of The Regis Players for their support during 2008.
