PROGRAMME FOR NOVEMBER 2018

7th NOVEMBER

1.30 – 3.30 p.m.

NOSTALGIA WITH A JEWISH FLAVOUR – JOYCE DAVIS

Joyce is presenting a musical programme. The connection with each piece of music she will be playing will be that the singer, composer, musician involved, etc. is Jewish.  She is going to throw in one or two anecdotes for good measure and promises that you will know and enjoy every tune.  Apart from enjoying the music, there is nothing better than a bit of nostalgia.

14th NOVEMBER

1.30 – 3.30 p.m.

GEORGE GERSHWIN – THE 20th CENTURY GREATEST COMPOSER – ROGER FILER

It is very unusual for us to have two musical programmes in a row, but sometimes that is how the cookie crumbles. George Gershwin (1898-1937) was an American composer and pianist.  His compositions spanned both popular and classical music.  This will be a powerpoint presentation about his life and work and you will also hear some of his memorable music.  Start humming and tapping your feet.

21st NOVEMBER

1.30 – 3.30 p.m.

AN INSIGHT INTO JEWS IN THE BRITISH FORCES – SGT. DAN FOX – PART 2

Sgt. Dan Fox gave a fascinating talk to us recently and all those who saw and heard him will not be missing this one.  Today he hopes to bring along a couple of colleagues who will join in a discussion about their personal experiences in the British Forces.  The discussion will then be thrown open for general reaction from you, the audience.  I hope that all those members who have served in the Forces, and did their National Service, will be on parade.

28th NOVEMBER

1.30 – 3.30 p.m.

JOHN LE MESURIER – A ONE ACT PLAY BY NIGEL COLEMAN

John Le Mesurier was an English actor maybe best remembered for his role as Sergeant Wilson in the BBC’s comedy ‘Dad’s Army’.  Nigel will be presenting his usual one act play on this wonderful character actor and will, no doubt, be thoroughly entertaining, as he always is when he visits us.
