Report on a Showcase at The Friends’ Meeting House 3.12.15

Our final show of 2015 was outstanding. Besides our guest poet, Abi Idowu’s excellent contribution, the writing by others was particularly good. The singing by Irina in Russian and the Congolese choir in Swahili made a big difference to the evening. When the dancers came on at the end they had expected to get people to join in at about the third dance. In fact, the audience was up after two bars of music and this dancing ended a stunning evening which turned out to be one of the best shows of the year.

As with all our shows at this venue, refreshments included food prepared by our volunteers and in particular by our Indian, Albanian and Russian chefs whose creations were avidly devoured by the audience.
