“The Mikado” Our 2020 Production Postponed
The events of the last few weeks and months around the world have been unprecedented. In light of the measures to combat the spread of the coronavirus Covid-19 we have decided to postpone this years production of The Mikado and re-schedule the performance in 2021 .
The dates for the show will now be 16th to 19th June 2021 so please add these dates to your diaries and we look forward to seeing you next year.
Charitable donations from programme sales
Those of you who are regular attenders at our shows will have noticed that in 2017 and 2018 we have sold large glossy programmes for the show rather than providing the usual paper ones. This was the initiative of several of our members, led by Sian Dowson. The proceeds were intended for donation to charity, which in 2017 was the local group Red2Green.
Last year we were able to make a donation of £357 to the charity SOS Children’s Villages, who are based in Cambridge. This was in memory of Philip Morris, the husband of one of our members, who tragically died suddenly early in the year and who was a supporter of this charity. The money will go sponsor the village of Chipata in Zambia for the next eighteen months.
Many thanks to all our audience members who bought programmes and made other donations.
