With the current lack of accommodation in the town we are desperate to find beds for some of our performers. Are there any local residents amongst you who would be able to offer rooms for deserving singers? Despite being Shanty Men we find that most are very well house trained and make excellent guests! We can offer Season Ticket wristbands to households who are able to help out in this way. Please do email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Our popular Annual Treasure Hunt was on Friday 28th December starting as usual at the Alma. It’s always a great way to fill the sometimes dead period between Christmas and New Year and there is stiff competition nowadays to win that cup!
Well done to our winners. Team Daces won the adult prize and the children’s prize was won by Luke, Evie, Elizabeth & Lilly
Runners up for the adult prize were The Lads & The Doctor
