Thornton Little Theatre was the venue once again for the North Fylde Group charity show and was held as part of the Tercentenary celebrations. During the evening references were made to famous musical freemasons and songs were performed in their honour. The talented cast members were either North Fylde masons or their close family members.
The show had been put together by Roger Lloyd-Jones and his talents were much in evidence throughout the evening. The assembled cast consisted of comedian Ryan Gleeson, guitarist Chris Hodder, magician Bob Sims, vocalist Hugh Mett, musical duo K squared, and several of Roger’s talented friends from the Chaddeans.
The audience were also treated to several comedy sketches, some of which irreverently poked fun at our Group Chairman, Duncan Smith. The first act ended with a rousing performance of Land of Hope and Glory by Ann Cookson, joined by several cast members.
The second part of the show was full of song and dance and further merriment, and to close a splendid evening the audience were treated to a marvellous Blues Brothers medley, led by Roger.
Jim Gregson, Group Charity Steward, is pleased to announce that the show made close to £1500, all of which will be dispersed among charities.
